A number of potentially fatal birth defects can be detected before birth because of the advanced imaging and diagnostics available at Apollo Centre for Fetal Medicine.
High-risk pregnancies involve rare medical conditions not seen in a routine pregnancy. Detection of these conditions typically requires special knowledge, expertise, testing methods and equipment. An early and accurate diagnosis is vital to clarifying the plan of treatment for high-risk pregnancies and improving the outcome.
Specialists at the Apollo Centre for Fetal Medicine use a variety of high-tech tools to assess and diagnose fetal conditions. Some of the commonly used diagnostic tools include:
- Early anomaly scan (12-16 weeks)
- Second trimester anomaly scan or Level-II scan
- Multiple Pregnancy scan
Imaging the fetal heart with ultrasound technology to understand the fetal cardiac structure, function and rhythm.
- 3-D and 4-D Ultrasound
- Fetal MRI
This sophisticated tool can help doctors identify structural abnormalities that older tests would miss.Read More
