20-week ultrasound: discover the magic of ultrasound

What is a 20-week Ultrasound?
The 20-week ultrasound, also known as the “anatomy scan” or “structural ultrasound,” is a medical ultrasound typically performed between the 18th and 21st week of pregnancy. During this ultrasound, the major organs and structures of the fetus are thoroughly assessed. It provides detailed insight into the development and health of your baby.
