Why is an ultrasound exam so important in pregnancy?
— During the first trimester, a fetal ultrasound determines the health of an early pregnancy with the measurement of the nuchal translucency.
— During the second trimester, a fetal ultrasound rules out most birth defects with a comprehensive evaluation of the fetal anatomy.
— During the third trimester, a fetal ultrasound evaluates the size of the developing baby and identifies pregnancies with abnormal growth.
