UZDG during pregnancy is a must for many women
Many women are prescribed ultrasound doplerography (UZDG) in pregnancy for vascular examination. The examination is also shown if the woman has a late first pregnancy or there are presumptions of the occurrence of certain diseases. UZDG in pregnancy is recommended to facilitate the study of conditions that affect the vessels: these are diseases that cause occlusion of the carotid arteries, as well as deep vein thrombosis, diseases of the hands and feet, varicose veins and various aneurysms.
In case of fears about intrauterine development of the future baby, if the mother has pre-eclampsia or high blood pressure (these conditions, in connection with worsening blood flow through the umbilical cord, often adversely affect the development of the fetus), a doctor may be appointed by the doctor of the fetus. Using the computer, information is processed and a two-dimensional color image is created. With its help, you can see if there is difficulty in the blood flow, for example, because of the deposition of cholesterol.
Modern apparatus, with which they do both ultrasound and Doppler, combine information on the movement of blood through the vessels. The device shows how the blood flows through the blood vessels, the rate of blood flow. Such UZDG in pregnancy can be useful in order to establish the diameter of the vessel and the amount of blockage, if any. Images are usually color-coded, and only a professional doctor can correctly read the diagram and see where the blood flow is blocked.
Many women ask themselves the question: what happens during this procedure? This study is conducted in the ultrasound room by a specially trained specialist, it can also be performed by a vascular surgeon. The procedure lasts no more than 30 minutes, and it does not require the introduction of special medicines. Before the beginning of the study, the doctor asks the patient to lie down on the table and slightly raise her head. It lubricates the area of the examination with a gel that improves the transmission of ultrasonic waves. The doctor presses the sensor to the skin, (some patients find this procedure unpleasant, but most do not experience any discomfort). The sensor sends signals to the computer, which are converted into an image. The whistling sound during the examination is the movement of blood in the body, and it should not be frightened. According to the results, pregnancy can be adjusted.
The first ultrasound is also very necessary for a woman, and for her future baby. After all, only with the help of the doctor can the doctor determine the state of the fetus's health and specify the terms of pregnancy. The procedure not only helps monitor pregnancy. Photo fetus is also always interesting to see the future father and mother.
It should be noted that you need to follow the doctor's recommendations. Therefore it is not necessary to refuse, if he has appointed or nominated UZDG at pregnancy. Moreover, there are no complications after the procedure. A woman can engage in her usual activities and enjoy the process of bearing a child. In fact, UZDG during pregnancy is a completely harmless procedure for both the woman in the position and the future child.
