Ultrasound is used in OB/GYN to monitor the health and development of the fetus during pregnancy. It allows healthcare providers to visualize the fetus, assess fetal growth, check for any abnormalities, and monitor the placenta and amniotic fluid. In Gynecology, ultrasound can be used to examine the pelvic organs, diagnose conditions, and guide certain procedures.
Obstetric ultrasounds are typically performed at various stages of pregnancy. The first ultrasound, often called a dating or viability scan, is usually done in the first trimester to confirm the pregnancy, estimate gestational age, and check for the heartbeat. Additional ultrasounds may be performed in the second and third trimesters for detailed fetal anatomy assessment and growth monitoring.
Yes, there are different types of OB/GYN ultrasounds. Common ones include:
- Transabdominal ultrasound: A transducer is moved across the abdomen to create images.
- Transvaginal ultrasound: A probe is inserted into the vagina for clearer images, especially in early pregnancy.
- Doppler ultrasound: Measures blood flow, often used to assess fetal well-being.
Generally, ultrasound is considered safe during pregnancy when used as recommended by healthcare professionals. It does not use ionizing radiation like X-rays. However, it’s important to use ultrasound judiciously, and medical professionals will weigh the benefits against any potential risks.
