Fetal Doppler

Fetal Doppler Flowmetry Essentials

  • Time of ultrasound scan: upon request.
  • Assessment of blood flow in fetal circulation through measuring and reporting of:
    • Flow in umbilical artery (resistive index in umbilical artery).
    • Flow all over the fetal body (mean velocity in fetal aorta).
    • Perfusion to the fetal brain (resistive index and peak systolic velocity of middle cerebral artery).
    • Perfusion in fetal liver (ductus venosus wave form shape ).
    • Uterine artery flow (resistive index).
  • Route of ultrasound scan: Transabdominal.
