The term “growth scan” is used by many hospitals and ultrasound centres. A growth scan checks how well the baby is growing and usually performed at the third trimester of pregnancy. It checks fetal growth and vital signs.
In majority of the places the scan does not aim to exclude fetal anomalies.
The short answer is yes:
According to recent publication from two London-based hospitals, which have good quality screening programs, the quarter (24.8%) of all fetal anomalies were diagnosed in the 3rd trimester (35-37 weeks). Developmental scan aims to exclude those fetal problems which have late manifestation.
