OBSTETRIC ULTRASOUND

Obstetric ultrasound is an essential diagnostic tool in pregnancy. The antenatal detection of medical problems in pregnancy and with the baby is very important. Early detection enables identified problems to be managed and, in some cases, antenatal treatment can be instituted. Common concerns that can be detected or predicted include chromosomal abnormalities, a small baby, pre-eclampsia and structural problems with the baby. It is reassuring for parents when a scan shows that their baby that is developing normally. Scanning helps with pregnancy bonding, and the importance of this cannot be emphasised enough.

GENERAL ULTRASOUND

Ultrasound is used to assess the structure of internal organs as they function (‘real time’ imaging). It is often one of the first types of diagnostic imaging used as it is safe and can be used to assess many body parts. Ultrasound is used to examine many parts of the body such as the abdomen, breasts, kidneys, prostate, scrotum, thyroid gland, and assess blood flow through the vascular system.
