An ultrasound scan taken between the 18th and 21st week of pregnancy is an Anomaly Scan. The prime objective of this scan is to determine the healthy development of the fetus. The scan especially focuses on assessing the development of all the major organs and to rule out any major physical abnormalities. With an anomaly scan, doctors will also make other vital observations such as the location of the placenta and the sufficiency of amniotic fluid.
Anderson Diagnostics & Labs is the most reputed diagnostic centre for getting an anomaly scan in Chennai. The dated scan is a 2D or 3D black and white image that reveals the side-view of the baby in the mother’s uterus. The images will also include the fetus’ hands and legs. An anomaly scan will be assessed by the radiologist who will give a detailed diagnostic report of the findings.
