Hi Lia. Ultrasound or ultrasound is an examination that relies on high frequencies and the heat generated to produce images. In pregnancy, this is the safest modality for the fetus. In general, there is no evidence that prolonged ultrasound has an adverse effect on the fetus. Although there have been reports on this matter, it still requires further research.
Until now, ultrasound is still the safest modality in assessing pregnancy. However, its use must still be based on medical indications so that there is no excessive abuse.
Always consult your obstetrician and his needs regarding ultrasound can help. Hopefully helpful, and thank you. Regards, Dr Alyssa
