Negative Effects Of Ultrasound On Fetal Growth And Development?
p dir = "ltr"> Hello!
Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service
Ultrasonography (USG) is one of the medical supporting examinations. Ultrasonography uses its high frequency sound waves which make it possible to see a picture of the inside of the body.
Ultrasound is the safest examination for examinations in pregnant women. Ultrasound in obstetric practice is useful for assessing the condition of the reproductive organs, the fetus in the uterus and diagnosing if there are abnormalities in the uterus or fetus. This examination is safe because it does not contain X-rays that carry radiation that can interfere with the health of the fetus and pregnant women.
Currently there are 2D, 3D and 4D ultrasound. 2D ultrasound is a type of conventional examination, while 3D and 4D ultrasound can show a more detailed picture of the fetus and assess the presence or absence of congenital abnormalities in the fetus.
During pregnancy, at least 4 times USG is recommended, which is when you are first known to be pregnant in the first trimester, then once in the second trimester of pregnancy and 2 times in the third trimester of pregnancy.
Until now there are no research data that show negative effects on the fetus from the use of ultrasound, both with 2D, 3D and 4D. Therefore the examination is quite safe to do for pregnant women.
Some medical opinions do associate an adverse effect on the fetus with too much ultrasound exposure. However, the statement still needs to be reviewed because there is no medical evidence related to this matter.
If necessary, consult your obstetrician to get more complete and relevant information related to your condition.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
