2D ultrasound is a two-dimensional examination, which allows for the assessment of a cross-section of the uterus and the foetus inside it, along with images of its internal organs
2D ultrasound is the primary and most important type of ultrasound in obstetric diagnosis. It allows you to confirm early pregnancy, locate the embryo inside the uterus, assess the age of pregnancy, determine the size and weight of the foetus, and visualize its internal organs and anatomical structures, especially the placenta and the amount of amniotic fluid. 2D ultrasound is the earliest way to diagnose a multiple pregnancy and determine the type of pregnancy by imaging the number of embryos, chorion and amniotic fluid. The diagnosis of multiple pregnancy poses the need to plan appropriate care for the patient and her babies.
