Myths About Ultrasound During Pregnancy (1)

Do ultrasound have radiation?
This is not true. Ultrasound uses insufficient high frequency sound waves to harm the internal structure of the body. Radiation radiation is used in X-rays and CT scans only.

Is ultrasound dangerous if performed too often?
Ultrasound is really safe to do every time. In high-risk situations, regular monitoring is required for optimal results. You don’t need an ultrasound every week, and requesting an unnecessary medical test is not a good practice for anyone.

Is it true that ultrasound is bad for babies?
Not true. On the other hand, ultrasound is a good way of seeing newborns. The WHO systematic review of literature and meta-analysis also states that “according to the available evidence, exposure to diagnostic ultrasound during pregnancy appears to be safe”.

It is true that ultrasound can cause miscarriage in the first three months of pregnancy?
Early USG is very important for pregnancy confirmation and location; to monitor the early growth and heart rate of the fetus. If the baby is not growing in the right place in the womb, it can be a threat to the mother as well as the baby’s growth. Under the guidance of a doctor, medications should be taken to ensure the growth of the baby’s brain.

Transvaginal Ultrasound (TVS) is very risky?
If done slowly, it is as safe as any other simple test. And, in addition, being a high-resolution modality, it provides the best picture of a baby in real time. (Remember the beautiful, smiling baby 3D face seen in the image.)
