Ultrasound technology has helped improve child health in a big way. You will not be able to find a baby who has never been scanned before he or she was born. These scans are very useful in early diagnosis of health issues with unborn babies. Instead of the old 2D scans, 3D Scans have become a possibility these days.
With these scans the sonogrphers are able to detect any problems that could be there with internal organs of babies. In case any diagnosis is made, quick reference to a fetal specialist could address the issue. There is no other technology as effective as ultrasound scans on detecting problems with internal organs of babies.
In addition to being a diagnostic tool, these scans could create bonds between mothers and unborn babies. This is because when the fetus is grown to a certain extent a mother could look at her baby through an ultrasonic scan to develop a strong bond with her baby.
