What is a 4D Growth and Doppler scan?
Private Ultrasound 4D Growth with Doppler package is performed anytime after week 24 of pregnancy. Baby Growth or Wellbeing scan will assess baby’s development and will measure the head, abdomen and limbs, in particular. This helps us estimate your baby’s weight at birth.
We will also look at the position of placenta, the amount of amniotic fluid and will assess baby’s movements.
On top of this, we will perform a Doppler scan. It measures the blood flow in different parts of your baby’s body, such as the umbilical cord, brain and heart. This helps to show whether the baby is getting all the oxygen and nutrients required via the placenta.
Doppler is also very valuable in assessing potential risk of preeclampsia.
How is the 4D Growth and Doppler scan performed?
This is an external ultrasound examination, with an ultrasound probe gently gliding over your abdomen. It is entirely safe and comfortable for both you and your baby.
