    Yep, it is!


    Sent from my iPhone using Bub Hub-that's why it's full of bad grammar and spelling mistakes!

    Radiographers can do ultrasounds, as can sonographers.

    Radiographers cannot do ultrasounds - they take xrays. Sonographers do ultrasounds, however many of them were radiographers first

    All sonographers have done further study to specialize in ultrasound of the uterus, womb, fetus etc.

    A sonologist (a doctor) reads the picture and data information and writes the report.

    Similar relationship to that is a radiographer and radiologist.

    My only 'scheduled' one is 19 week in a normal low-risk pregnancy.
    However, my (private) OB did a quick one in his room at my first appt (9 weeks), has referred me to the 12 week one but it was entirely my choice, he said it was optional. And a friend of mine who has had the same OB said he did another in his rooms at 30-something week.

    depends on DR, history & how birth came about.

    My case - IVF bub ... so have a scan at 6 weeks, then 8 weeks if needed.

    I had mine at 6 weeks then 9 weeks, then a 12 week scan and due to my history of having an under achieving cervix ;P I will be having scans fortnighly until 34 weeks... my lucky ultrasound place kach$$$ing.
