Why do I need to have an ultrasound during my pregnancy?

Ultrasound can take high quality images of many parts of your body, which makes it an excellent diagnostic tool. During pregnancy, an ultrasound is recommended for a number of reasons:

  • For confirming the age of the baby and to predict the due date;
  • To look at the baby as it develops throughout the various stages of pregnancy;
  • To screen for chromosomal and other abnormalities (such as Down syndrome).
