What is an ultrasound?
An ultrasound scan (or sonogram) is a procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to create an image of inside the body.
An ultrasound helps you to monitor an unborn baby in the womb and make sure it is developing normally. Your doctor might recommend that you have 1 or more ultrasounds to confirm the gestation of the pregnancy or at different points in your pregnancy to check the anatomy of the fetus for defects or problems.
Depending on how far along your pregnancy is, ultrasound images help your doctor:
- Estimate your due date
- See the position of the placenta
- See the size, position, movement, breathing and heart rate of the fetus
- See the amount of amniotic fluid in your uterus
- Find multiple pregnancies (twins, triplets, etc).
