HOW DOES THE PRENATAL DIAGNOSTIC UNIT WORK: 3D and 4D ULTRASOUND
The patient’s gynaecologist can request the performance of the prenatal tests that he or she considers appropriate, according to his or her gestation control plan, or the patient herself can go to the Embriogyn Fetal Medicine Clinic of her own free will.
Once the process has begun, we will make an appointment and explain to you what each test consists of, based on the specific medical and genetic advice in each case, to help you make decisions, accompanying you at every step.
In addition, we make a complete report of each test and ultrasound performed, which will be given to you with a copy for your gynecologist.
Prenatal control of the fetus during pregnancy can be divided into three different stages that correspond to the three quarters that the gestation of a human baby lasts.
