Where Are The Most Common Areas To Scan?
At our ultrasound clinic in Singapore, we have scanned a wide range of different body parts on various different patients. The most common use for our ultrasound is for pregnant women, in which it is used to help study the health of a fetus. It is also used to study the pelvic organs as well as the different muscles and tendons within the body. Additionally, we often use the scan to detect any narrowing blood vessels, allowing us to prevent cardiac problems in the long run. None of our techniques requires needles, injections or any other discomforts, making them significantly safer than other scans such as x-rays as you will not be exposed by any ionizing radiation throughout the process.
Ultrasound During Pregnancy
In our Singapore clinic, we use our ultrasound clinic for pregnancy. It is a fantastic way to see your baby, ensuring that your little one is as healthy as possible. The time to conduct your first ultrasound scan is at twelve weeks, in which your baby is of a good size for the scan to show the possible results. This helps us gain an insight into how your baby is doing, ensuring that their living conditions are healthy so they can successfully develop.
Between the 24th and 28th weeks of pregnancy, we will be able to produce the scans. At this stage, your baby will have developed enough natural fats to be seen vividly, ensuring that we get the picture possible. Your baby is also of optimal size at this point, which means that you will receive the possible view of their face and body.
Our team have conducted thousands of scans, ensuring that we can provide you with the scan you are looking for, specially tailored to your preferences. Each scan is conducted in the safest possible environment, ensuring that you feel comfortable throughout. Call up asking when our ultrasound doctor is on and discover how our team can help you!
