Q:

Hello Experts, One curiousity question , Does the position of baby affects the result of Level II scan taken during 18-22 weeks of pregnency, What if baby is facing the tummy of the lady , will it be giving proper information regarding the anterior portion of the baby like facial features n other vital information. Plz put up ur opinion regarding this query.  Warm Regards

position of the baby is very important while scanning. there r a lot of fetal parts n organ details to see. they are to be seen in particular positions n we have to catch it while baby os moving. if we dont have an ideal fetal position it becomes very difficult. same issue fr the NT scan

Thanks Payal mam for ur answer.
One more thing , In case the face is embedded in the tummy of the lady, are there chances that any kind of anomaly may be detected due to incorrect position of baby  as there may be some miscalculations.  (anomaly like nasal bone size or the thickness of nuchal translucency)

i missed ur followup qs. if the baby isnt in proper position fr a measurement etc the norm is to wait n rescan. especially when there is a doubt
