First screening: ultrasound and blood chemistry

Pregnancy screening is a complex of studies. It includes ultrasound diagnostics (ultrasound) and a biochemical blood test. The first screening allows doctors to get detailed information about the health of the fetus and the expectant mother. The doctor makes all the indicators in a special program. It automatically calculates whether there are opportunities for the development of pathologies and the risks of anomalies.

An accurate diagnosis, in this case, is impossible without the results of analyzes. Therefore, the specialist will not be able to develop a treatment regimen.
