What is an Ultrasound?

An ultrasound is a scanning unit that uses sound waves to create an image of the activities that occur in the human body. The unit has a transducer that emits high-frequency sound not within the human hearing range. The sound bounces off different tissue types, and the sound echoes are then recorded as sound waves bounce back.

The unit has a monitor that displays the data in real time. Among the data displayed is the size, consistency and shape of the soft tissues and organs. With advancements in ultrasound scanning techniques and technology, ultrasound applications have expanded beyond reproductive health. Ultrasounds can also be used to observe other organs in the body, such as the thyroid gland, liver and spleen, among others.

Private Pregnancy Scans and Early Pregnancy Scan Romford

Ultrasound is a prenatal care, with the first scan taking place between six and 10 weeks of the pregnancy from inception. The early pregnancy scan in Romford is also called the viability scan or the dating scan. It’s used to check for the location of the pregnancy and ensure the embryo is implanted in the uterus. It also checks the size of the gestational sac and estimates the gestation period.

Depending on when the scan is taken, it can show various features of the embryo and other vital details that can help you and your healthcare team determine the best way to proceed with the pregnancy.

At six weeks, the embryo and the foetal heartbeat should be seen if the dates are accurate. At seven weeks, foetal heart action should be present, and at eight weeks, the foetal form should be clear. If the scan is performed too early, and you can’t see your baby clearly, you can repeat the scan in 10-14 days.

Early pregnancy ultrasounds in Romford are not compulsory. However, they are recommended, especially if you have a history of early miscarriages, ectopic pregnancies or you’ve become pregnant through assisted fertility treatment. You can also get the scan if you’re experiencing symptoms that cause you to worry. The scan can provide you with answers.
