Checking the blood flow
Using a special ultrasound technique, the veins of mother and child can be examined. The blood flow of the umbilical cord can be depicted. The colored blood streams allow us to draw conclusions about the blood flow and supply of nutrients to the child.
If your child is relatively small, we will be able to check whether this is caused by an insufficient blood supply – therefore a lack of oxygen.
Important indications concerning changes of the breasts, the uterus or the ovaries can also be revealed by that technique. An increased blood flow is, amongst others, found in pernicious changes and inflammation.
The statutory health insurance will cover the costs if there are medical indications that suggest the need for the investigation.
