A fetal ultrasound (sonogram) is an imaging technique that uses sound waves to produce images of a fetus in the uterus.
Fetal ultrasound images can help your health care provider evaluate your baby’s growth and development and monitor your pregnancy.
This scan also includes measuring the blood flow to the baby’s umbilical cord, and also includes assessing the amount of amniotic fluid,
measuring fetal growth, determining the position of the placenta and estimating the fetal weight. It is advisable to have a full bladder to
ensure the ultrasound image is clearer.
