Doppler technology evaluates fetal blood flow. We use Colour Doppler for meticulous examination of the fetal heart structures and function. (28-40 Weeks)
Do I need to have Doppler Scan?
Doppler is ultrasound technology used for examination of the blood flow in the fetal heart, different fetal
vessels and maternal uterine arteries. Fetal Spectral Doppler scans are used in different situations
especially in management small babies, fetuses with anemia or monitoring of the ladies with different
Types of Doppler scans we can perform:
1. Uterine arteries
2. Umbilical arteries
3. Middle cerebral artery
4. Ductus venosus
We use Colour Doppler in order to exclude fetal anomalies
Colour Doppler represents powerful non-invasive ultrasound imaging technology which visualise
structures with blood perfusion. It depicts the structure of the heart and vessels by visualisation of blood
flow. We widely use this advanced technology for fetal heart examination (fetal echocardiography) and
other situations like vasa previa screening.
