What is Ultrasound?

An ultrasound scan is a medical test that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the inside of your body. It’s also known as sonography.

An ultrasound helps you find out whether the fetus is developing normally. Your doctor might recommend that you have 1 or more ultrasounds to confirm the gestation of the pregnancy or at different points in your pregnancy to check the anatomy of the fetus for defects or problems.

Importance of Pregnancy Ultrasound

Depending on how far along your pregnancy is, ultrasound images help your doctor:

  • Estimate your due date
  • See the position of the placenta
  • See the size, position, movement, breathing, and heart rate of the fetus
  • See the amount of amniotic fluid in your uterus
  • Find multiple pregnancies (twins, triplets, etc).

The technology is similar to that used by sonar and radar, which help the military detect planes and ships. An ultrasound allows your doctor to see problems with organs, vessels, and tissues without needing to make an incision.

What can an ultrasound scan detect?

Ultrasound is used to create images of soft tissue structures, such as the gallbladder, liver, kidneys, pancreas, bladder, and other organs and parts of the body. Ultrasound can also measure the flow of blood in the arteries to detect blockages. Ultrasound testing is safe and easy to perform.


Most ultrasound scans last between 15 and 45 minutes. They usually take place in a hospital radiology department and are performed either by a radiologist or a sonographer.
