    • Ultrasound Fetal Morphology (18-24 weeks)

      The morphologic fetal ultrasound is performed abdominally at 18-24 gestational weeks. In many cases, this is the last ultrasound performed during pregnancy.

      The main objectives of the 18-24 weeks ultrasound or morphologic fetal ultrasound are to confirm the gestational age, the adequate growth of the fetus, the correct position of the placenta and the viability of multiple gestations. In some cases it is possible to disclose the baby’s gender. By this time, the fetus has already a dimension which allows a more rigorous anatomical evaluation, for this ultrasound also has the objective to detect some eventual congenital malformations.

      The ultrasound can only provide information on the existence of possible physical abnormalities and not about defects of other nature (biochemical, metabolic, genetic, chromosomal, etc.). Therefore, a normal result from an ultrasound examination will not guarantee that a child will be born without physical alterations or without body or psychomotor developmental problems.

      Although the 18-24 weeks ultrasound allows morphologic fetal abnormalities to be detected, the precision of this technique depends on:

      • The gestational age, being more reliable when the ultrasound is performed between 21-23 weeks of gestation,
      • The type of abnormality, since some abnormalities are very difficult or impossible to see in an ultrasound,
      • Factors relating to the mother, including obesity, low levels of amniotic fluid and the use of moisturizers on the abdomen,
      • The position of the fetus,

      The upper mentioned aspects may hinder the examination and lead to a more lengthy procedure or even make it inconclusive, requiring the ultrasound to be conducted at a later date.

      Although growth alterations can be detected on the 18-24 weeks ultrasound, it may not be possible for the physician to identify the reasons for which they occurred or formulate a definitive diagnosis based only on the ultrasound results.

      Some diseases start or are only manifest at more advanced stages of pregnancy, having a forcibly late ultrasound diagnosis. These diseases include infections, some digestive abnormalities, urinary obstructions, intestinal obstructions, skeletal dysplasias or strokes, among others.
      While the ultrasound provides important information on the condition of the fetus, it does not, however, provide an absolute determination of fetal well-being.
