Prenatal Imaging: A Guide


The prenatal imaging center uses the best-in-class prenatal imaging machines, with both 2D and 3-D capabilities to provide symptomatic imaging services for all pregnancies.

Imaging before birth

2D ultrasound:

Pre-birth ultrasound uses high-recurrence sound waves in order to take a picture of the baby, placenta, and uterus. Although ultrasound can be performed throughout pregnancy, it should be done at specific times. For example, to obtain the nuchal clarity and precise dating, and to examine the fetal life system, in the next trimester (18 to 22 weeks). Ultrasound is safe during pregnancy and can be done either centrally or transvaginally.

Ultrasound in 3D and 4D

A 3D ultrasound can provide itemized photos of an embryo-like image by using similar innovations and comparative methods to the 2D ultrasound. This is particularly useful if there are particular irregularities or concerns. The ongoing 3D symbolism for the hatchling is enabled by 4D ultrasound.

Echocardiography of the Fetus:

Fetal echocardiography, a special ultrasound that assesses the fetal heart, is used. An expert in intrinsic coronary disease decodes the images. Pre-birth ultrasound is the same. Imaging gel and the test are applied in the mother’s mid-region. It’s not difficult and does no harm to the child.

A fetal echocardiogram can take anywhere from 30 minutes to over two hours depending on the complexity of the child’s heart. Fetal echocardiograms are able to be performed at any time after 17 weeks. However, with transvaginal ultrasound and innovation, it is possible to obtain images of the fetal’s heart up to 13 weeks ahead of schedule.


An example of a demonstrative technique is a fetal MRI (attractive reverberation image). It uses attractive fields to provide perspectives from different points on the baby, the placenta, and the mother’s body. It is especially useful for taking pictures of the fetal brain, chest, and mid-region.

During an MRI, the mother must lie down on her side or back. The average time it takes to extract the concentrate is between 30-45 minutes. It is considered safe to use X-rays during pregnancy. There are no adverse effects on unborn babies. The machine is a powerful magnet and metal objects are not allowed.

Analyze and Screening

1. Inspecting chorionic villus (CVS).

CVS is a prenatal test that is usually performed between 10 and 14 weeks before the due date. This is the removal of a small amount of chorionic tissue, which is part of the placenta. It can be done by either a catheter through your cervix or a needle embedded in the mid-region.

This strategy is done under ultrasound guidance. CVS can recognize chromosome irregularities, like aneuploidy, adjustments, and significant duplications or cancellations, with 99.6 to 99.8 percent exactness. One out of 200 people or 0.5 percent is at risk of an unnatural birth.

2. Amniocentesis:

The normal time for amniocentesis occurs between 15 and 23 weeks into a pregnancy. This technique involves removing a small amount of amniotic fluid (liquid surrounding the unborn child) from the uterus using a thin needle through the midsection. The CVS methodology can be done under ultrasound direction.

It can detect chromosome irregularities such as aneuploidy, huge duplications or cancellations, and large revisions with 99.6 to 99.8 percent precision. It can also recognize open neural tube absconds (spina bifida or anencephaly), and stomach divider abandons, with approximately 95% precision. One out of 300 people or 0.3 percent is at risk of failing to perform the technique.
