Doppler ultrasound during pregnancy is a vital part of antenatal care and is done to monitor fetal growth and health. It uses sound waves to check blood circulation in womb and fetus and gives an image of the fetus. Due to this, many anomalies in childbirth can be treated on time. It can be used to detect the following problems
- Fetal abnormalities
Doppler ultrasound is widely used in fetal blood circulation and growth within the womb. If child growth or circulation is hampered, important measures can be taken. This investigative technique lowers the risk of birth abnormalities or stillbirth.
- Placental abnormalities
The placenta is the organ formed during pregnancy which transports nutrition from mother to baby. It is rich in blood vessels and any abnormality in the placenta can result in birth defects and even prenatal death. Doppler ultrasound can form an image of blood circulation within the placenta and womb which can be managed.
- High-risk pregnancy
Doppler ultrasound can detect for threatened miscarriage in the early stages. Adequate precautions in early stages can reduce the chances of miscarriage and promote better health care for mother and child.
