Pregnant women are often asked to perform ultrasound examinations (ultrasonography) repeatedly. Sometimes, it’s doubtful whether the risk of harm to the baby’s examination at a later instance can cause growth retardation child later. But experts in Australia ensure that ultrasound is often not harm your baby.
Ultrasound examination has been carried out to determine the development and health of the fetus for 30 years. And a recent study in Australia, that does not prove the existence of long-term adverse effects in infants.
Recent study conducted on 2,700 children, ages 1, 2, 3, 5 and 8 years old. This study to see if there is a detrimental effect on their growth by doing an ultrasound examination carried out repeatedly when the children are still in the womb, more than 18 weeks.
Most children do an ultrasound to 5 times while still in the womb, and the rest of the other kids just do 1 ultrasound examination.
As a result, it was found that the body size of the children are no different. Also not seen a difference in these children’s development as in speech, behavior, language and neurological development.
With the present study, pregnant women who previously hesitated to undergo an ultrasound examination would be expected to undergo an ultrasound to help determine the development and health of the fetus
