Prenatal Care

During pregnancy, it is not uncommon for an OB-GYN to utilize ultrasound during pregnancy examinations. Ultrasound not only provides an expectant mother a detailed view of their baby’s health but also helps them get more familiar with the life that is growing inside of their womb. As you might imagine, this makes ultrasound systems an important part of prenatal care and is continuing to transform the possibilities for detecting and treating a variety of complications or problems that could occur as early as possible. But what other ways are ultrasound systems enhancing the pregnancy experience and ensuring that our future generations receive the best prenatal care possible? 

Ultrasound is energy in the form of sound waves. During an ultrasound exam, a transducer sends sound waves through the body. The sound waves come into contact with tissues, body fluids, and bones. The waves then bounce back, like echoes. The transducer receives these echoes, which are turned into images. The images can be viewed as pictures on a video screen. 

A pregnancy ultrasound is one of the easiest ways for both expectant parents and their doctor to learn how the child is developing inside of the womb in a non-invasive way. As a universal and safe method of studying a fetus and the uterus, an ultrasound system using mechanical technologies to create an accurate view of the fetus through the use of ultrasonic waves to create a digital reflection. Ultrasound used as a screening and diagnostic tool to evaluate the baby’s well-being as well as diagnose potential problems. Ultrasounds are key to screening for serious growth and developmental problems — including some that can be addressed in utero.

One other way that ultrasound is transforming prenatal care is through the use of these technologies to create “keepsakes” or memories that the parents can treasure forever. While 2D scans are often sufficient for most purposes, new 3D/4D and HD Live Ultrasound technologies can provide real-time video of the fetus with distinct features and a full panoramic view. Often, these types of ultrasound should be performed during the second or third trimester to ensure that the baby’s facial features are clearly defined for the best result.

With the prominent role that ultrasound systems play in monitoring the health of both a fetus and an expectant mother, it is important to ensure that the best ultrasound technologies possible are available and functional at all times.
