In ultrasound report of my wife is written as probability of missing of congenital anomaly are high after 28 weeks and accuracy of measurement of foetal parameters are low. What is the meaning ?

2 Doctors Answered
As generally anomaly scan should be done around 20 wk, after that liquor is not adequate and becoz of increase size of foetus we not able to identify many anomalies and too accuracy of parameter.
The best time to get a scan that rules out congenital anamoly in foetus is 18 -24 weeks scan .Any scan done after that might have high chance of missing anamolies in the baby. That is what they have mentioned. As long as the growth of the baby in the scan you have done is adequate do not worry about the comment.
