How is fetal ultrasonography performed?
Unlike ultrasound diagnostics ofabdominal cavity, kidney, etc., ultrasound during pregnancy does not require any special preparation (to starve and put an enema not necessary).
Now, for the ultrasound examination, two types of sensors are used: abdominal (the sensor is driven on the stomach) and vaginal (the sensor is inserted into the vagina). As a rule, transvaginal ultrasound examination is prescribed in the first trimester. A vaginal sensor allows you to better determine pregnancy at an early age. Transvaginal ultrasound requires an empty bladder.
In other cases, a transabdominal ultrasound is used: the gel is applied on the stomach, followed by special ultrasonic sensors. The gel is used to eliminate the air layer between the sensor and the body of the patient, because when it is present, the image on the monitor sharply worsens.
