The Right Ultrasound Frequency Limit And The Impact If It Is Excessive?
evening, I am nheno ikranegara, I want to ask, what is the negative impact if the frequency of ultrasound is often done and is there a standard maximum limit for the number of ultrasounds during pregnancy so as not to affect the baby in the womb??rnThank you
Hello, nheno ikranegara, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Ultrasound examination is an examination that uses high-frequency sound waves which will later reveal a picture of the target organ. Ultrasound is relatively safe and has more advantages than disadvantages for the mother and fetus. So far, there is no evidence that shows the adverse effects of ultrasound on pregnancy and the fetus, so there is no maximum limit on the number of times ultrasound can be performed during pregnancy. During pregnancy, it is recommended to do an ultrasound examination according to your doctor's instructions. Indeed, ultrasound can slightly increase the temperature of the place where the ultrasound device is attached, but the increase in temperature has no significant effect on the fetus. In addition, the fetus is protected by amniotic fluid so as not to be exposed to heat.
So, you no longer need to worry about ultrasound in pregnancy, as long as it is done on the advice of your doctor.
Here is an article about getting to know ultrasound more and whether repeated ultrasound can harm the fetus.
That's it, I hope it's useful.
