Breast and OB-GYN Ultrasound
The ultrasound scan is currently considered to be a safe procedure for evaluating the fetus. It is non-invasive, accurate and cost-effective. It has progressively become an indispensable obstetrical tool and plays an important role in the care of every pregnant woman.
The main uses of ultrasonography in obstetrics include: 1) Diagnosis and confirmation of early pregnancy, 2) vaginal bleeding in early pregnancy, 3) determination of gestational age and assessment of fetal size, and 4) diagnosis of fetal malformation. Gynecologists utilize this type of study to diagnosis a multitude of gynecologic disorders and disease.
After a diagnostic mammogram, ultrasound may be performed as an additional tool used to evaluate breast problems.
