Is Ultrasound Overused In Pregnancy?

Originally used only in high risk pregnancies, ultrasound is now offered routinely many times throughout pregnancy. Routine use is now officially recommended one time only at 16 to 18 weeks. Diagnostic ultrasound is useful for high risk or complicated pregnancies.

During an ultrasound examination, high frequency sound waves scan the mother's abdomen and then reflect the fetus and placenta on a video screen. Ultrasound technology has advanced to the point where it can show genetic as well as structural fetal abnormalities.

Research shows that routine ultrasound does not improve the outcome for the baby. Long term risks for the baby are unknown and have not been adequately studied. As with other technologies like electronic fetal monitoring, ultrasound was in widespread use before its risk versus benefit ratio could be studied.
