Sonography (ultrasound)

How is sonography (ultrasound) helpful

An ultrasound scan gives a picture of the baby in the mother's womb without using X-rays.  It is used to check the baby's development. By using sound waves, birth defects can be identified by the 16-18 week of gestations and sometimes even earlier. 
 

When is an ultrasound recommended

Most doctors, these days, advise 3-4 routine sonography tests: first test around the 6th week of pregnancy, second test around the 19th week, third one in the 7th month; and the fourth test in the 37th week.  In addition to birth defects, it also helps in identifying twins (or multiple births), and position of the baby and placenta closer to the due date.
