Have you heard about amniocentesis or what it`s used for? If you are trying to become a mother, this information may prove to be quite useful.
Have you wondered by now how early can birth defects be detected? If not, maybe it`s time you do, especially if you are planning to have a baby.
Unlike a few decades, now an early pregnancy ultrasound has become a reality and most of the times is very helpful when it comes to the health of the mother or baby.
Maybe no other method of examination didn`t had so much impact on obstetrics as ultrasound did. Today there`s no way to supervise a pregnancy`s development without an ultrasound. This goes under the arsenal of obstetrics and gynecology. The major advantage of this method is the fact that isn`t harmful or painful in any way, and allows the possibility of obtaining information in real time.
Ultrasounds used in obstetrics and gynecology consist in examination using ultrasounds performed during pregnancy. From their introduction at the end of 1950s until our times when 3D (4D) ultrasounds are now available in most hospitals and private clinics, ultrasonography has become a very useful diagnostic instrument in obstetrics.
