3D Ultrasound Scans for Fertility Testing and Treatment
Ultrasound scans play a major role in pregnancy, right from the stage of confirmation to the final trimester. For fertility testing and infertility treatment, latest technology like advanced 3D ultrasounds are preferred for greater success rates. The pregnancy rate for patients undergoing IVF is improved with 3D ultrasound which guides the placement of embryos when the endometrium is most receptive to implants. It is also considered as an alternative to invasive procedures like hysteroscopy.
Why is 3D ultrasound recommended?
In assisted reproductive technology, doctors get to closely monitor the position of embryos, making IVF much safer and decreasing the risk of ectopic pregnancy in patients. Through 3D ultrasounds, doctors can rule out birth defects such as cleft palate, that may fail to show up on a standard ultrasound.
How does 3D ultrasound check for structural defects that prevent conception?
A 3D scan offers more accurate diagnosis uterine malformations, fibroids and adenomyosis. Endometrium is examined separately, defining the real sagital plane for the width measurement and the volume of endometrium and subendometrium and 3D circulation. The shape and continuity of the tube can be defined apart from measuring the volume of the ovaries, follicles, cysts and tumors. Even the surface view of the inner layer of the follicle or the cyst can be seen. A 3D ultrasound can also define the exact position of the endometriotic nodules.
Are 3D ultrasounds safe?
Like regular ultrasounds, 3D ultrasounds use sound waves to create an image of the baby in the womb, but on various angles, measuring volumes, enabling evaluation of ovarian and uterine pathologies and congenital syndromes. Studies suggest that 3D ultrasounds are safe.
How should one prepare for 3D ultrasound?
Schedule for 3D ultrasound when the baby is most active. That can be gauged by observing the sleep pattern of the baby, which the mother can assess by around 19 weeks. Eat a light, protein-filled snack 45 minutes before the scan to get the baby active and moving. A heavy meal could cause the baby to fall asleep. Drink a glass of orange juice or something with sugar 10 minutes before the scan. Walk around and stay active to keep the baby awake. Wear loose clothing and stretchable cotton wear. Stay relaxed and comfortable.
