Intrauterine pregnancy ultrasound is a diagnostic imaging technique used to confirm and monitor the development of a pregnancy within the uterus.
This non-invasive procedure involves using an ultrasound machine and a transducer to create real-time images of the pelvic region. By visualizing the gestational sac, embryo, and fetal structures, ultrasound can determine the presence of an intrauterine pregnancy and evaluate its viability, gestational age, and overall health.
Intrauterine pregnancy ultrasound is essential in obstetrics, allowing healthcare professionals to assess fetal growth, detect any abnormalities or complications, and monitor the well-being of both the mother and the baby throughout the pregnancy. It plays a critical role in prenatal care, guiding appropriate management decisions and providing reassurance to expectant parents.
