Is It Dangerous To Have An Ultrasound Pregnancy Check Twice A Month?
Hello My pregnancy is already 22 weeks. I want to ask, is it dangerous to do ultrasound twice a month? Due to certain reasons. Thank you
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
Ultrasonography (USG) is an imaging technique using high frequency sound waves which will appear in black and white. Ultrasound can be used to monitor the condition of the fetus, diagnose the disease, as a tool during the surgical process or certain medical procedures.
Ultrasound performed to monitor the condition of the fetus is generally carried out externally when the gestational age is advanced. External ultrasound is a method of using a tool (probe) that is affixed to the surface of the skin to monitor the condition of organs in the body. The ultrasound procedure is done not using radiation, so it is relatively safe to do compared to X-rays, CT-Scan. If indeed there is a suspicion or condition that is feared to occur in the fetus it is advisable to control the obstetrician for further examination and management.
