Ultrasound has been used to view human body since late 1950’s. It is one of the most widely used diagnostic tool in modern medicine. Since ultrasound does not use ionizing radiation it poses no known harm to the body or tissues. In deed it is the only imaging modality safely used in pregnancy for more than 6 decades. Obstetric Ultrasound is a very important tool to determine and monitor the condition of a developing baby in the womb. If it is a high risk pregnancy; ultrasound is used more frequently for close monitoring. Ultrasound has solid safety records and the data collected over more than 50 years shows no harm to fetus. Sometimes a transvaginal scan is performed for the early stages of pregnancy. This technique can provide more detailed images.
