Our center has been performing genetic sonography for more than 20 years, and we have had experience in the diagnosis of thousands of birth defects.Our goal is to identify more than 75 percent of major structural malformations by 22 weeks.
The genetic sonogram, also called a targeted sonogram or Level II sonogram, is performed at 15 to 22 weeks into the pregnancy.
Ultrasound scanning can determine if babies are developing normally and if the babies share the same placenta.
If you are having a multiple pregnancy, your care provider may want to alter your nutrition and care plan as well as monitor your pregnancy more closely.
This ultrasound scan includes an examination of the developing fetus, the uterus, placenta, cervix and the regions of the ovaries.
At the 15- to 22-week mark in the pregnancy, measurements should match within 10 days of the actual pregnancy dating.
