Answer: Hello dear. An anomaly scan, also known as the ultrasound level II, is a mid-pregnancy scan that takes a closer look at your baby and the uterus (womb). In this scan, the sonographer can see whether the baby is developing normally and will also check the position of your placenta, the umbilical cord, and amniotic fluid around the baby. This scan is also known as morphology scan or 20-week scan. It is important to note that the purpose of this scan is to check your baby’s health and not to determine the gender of the baby. Hope it helps.

Answer: Hello, I'm happy to help.
Let me explain about TIFFA scan.
A TIFFA scan is one of the important scans conducted during 18-23 weeks of pregnancy. It is important because it detects any congenital abnormalities in the growing fetus.
It examines both the internal and external anatomy of the fetus. It helps detect any major effects as well as smaller chromosomal abnormalities and any genetic syndrome.
The scan is to be conducted on all pregnant women even though they may be in the low-risk category.
