In one, a real-time scanner is a continuous range of images of the fetus on a screen. Sound waves of very high frequency between 3.5 and 7.0 MHz are normally used in this procedure. A sensor is used for the release of these waves, which remained in contact with the mother's abdomen and moves around the search to a particular aspect of your uterus.
