When you are pregnant, many things are running across your mind, thousands of question and millions of doubts. Will my delivery go okay? Will my baby be healthy? Is my child going to be normal? Here's a list of pregnancy Scans services offered at Sparsh Women Hospital
First-Trimester Scan : an early pregnancy scan is a very important one as it will confirm the pregnancy and establish a due date. It is a transabdominal scan (done over the tummy) and is performed between 7-11 weeks of pregnancy. It also helps in confirmation of the number of embryos, the presence of heartbeat and detection of internal bleeding, if any
Growth Scans : A growth scan is an ultrasound scan done during the last trimester of pregnancy to determine the growth of the baby. It can be done once or many times (as per the requirement). The first fetal growth scan is suggested to be done between 28 weeks and 32 weeks of pregnancy to determine the growth and fetal wellbeing.
Anomaly Scan : Anomaly Scan or mid-pregnancy scan is an ultrasound scan done between the 18th and 21st week of pregnancy to take a closer look at the baby and the womb (uterus) and to have an idea where the placenta is lying.
Nuchal Translucency(NT) Scan : a nuchal translucency (NT) scan is an ultrasound that measures the amount of fluid collected under the skin at the back of the baby’s neck. It is usually done between 11-14 weeks of pregnancy. The significance of the NT scan is that it helps in determining the likeliness of Down’s syndrome, judging by the amount of fluid at the back of the neck. Motherhood’s expert team of doctors are well experienced at performing NT Scans and providing you with the best possible assistance.
