This is also called the 20-week scan. The main goal of this ultrasound scan at 20 weeks is to check the foetus for spina bifida or anencephaly, and to check the further development of the organs. Other physical abnormalities can also be seen. It is also checked whether the child is growing well and if there is enough amniotic fluid. The anomaly scan is reimbursed by the standard package of your health insurance provider (basispakket).
