Second Trimester Scans
Follow-Up Anatomy: This ultrasound is most often performed between 20 and 22 weeks. Your baby’s anatomy is re-evaluated for possible birth defects due to the fact that some features of your baby’s anatomy can be better visualized at this point. Likewise, parts of the baby are still developing. It is important to note that all birth defects cannot be identified while you are pregnant.
