Doppler Ultrasound for Growth Assessment

This examination is recommended for all pregnancies and is conducted during the final trimester. It involves a growth ultrasound that provides valuable insights into the fetus, including its weight and overall development.

By utilising Doppler ultrasound, the blood flow in the fetal vessels and placenta is assessed, offering information about the placental function, fetal development, and overall well-being.

Moreover, this examination aids in determining the risk of pre-eclampsia. The measurement of amniotic fluid levels and assessment of fetal movements contribute to the evaluation of the fetus’s well-being.

Additionally, the position and morphology of the placenta are examined as part of the assessment.
