Ultrasound has significantly transformed obstetrics (the medical care and control of pregnancy), during the last 20 years the medical technology has improved and the images we are able to get of our babies become more and more realistic and we are able to detect any fetal abnormalities in a timely manner.
4D (4th dimension) ultrasound complements the previous studies. We know that this technique is safe and allows us to get even more realistic images of the baby than 2D.
As a gyneco-obstetrician I believe it is important to have ultrasound scans throughout pregnancy and suggest women to have them done by a qualified professionals who have gone through a training specializing in certain phases of pregnancy. I hold a diploma in ultrasound as a medical ultrasonographer credentialed by the Universidad Autónoma de Querétaro and Ministry of Health of Quintana Roo.
During a normal pregnancy there are at least 3 scans carried out
1st ultrasound between the 11th and 13.6th weeks:
2nd structural ultrasound between the 18th and the 22nd
3rd trimester screening between the 28th and 32nd weeks
At Salud Primal we offer you 2D ultrasound, Doppler ultrasound (important to assess baby´s blood flow as well as uteroplacental circulation) and 4D ultrasound.
We know that this technique is safe and allows us to get even more realistic images of the baby than 2D.
