An ultrasound is a type of scan that uses sound waves to produce images of the inside of your body. An ultrasound scanner looks a bit like a home computer system. The hand-held scanner has a transducer that sends out sound waves. A transducer is a device that changes sound to electricity, like a two-way microphone. The sound waves bounce off the organs inside your body and are then picked up again by the transducer. The transducer is linked to a computer that creates real-time images from these reflected sound waves. The images are displayed on the screen. The pictures are constantly updated so the scan can show movement. A technician called a sonographer may carry out your ultrasound. Sonographers have had special training in taking ultrasound.
Usually your first scan will be at 12 weeks, however there may be occasions when you need an early scan. Early scans take place in Rayner Ward at the hospital. The 12 week scan is sometimes called the dating scan. The sonographer will estimate when your baby is due based on the baby’s measurements.
