Biophysical Profile

Biophysical Profile is a scoring system that is done with an ultrasound to help detect fetal compromise in many high risk circumstances. In this exam the sonographer observes fetal behaviors and movements in a 30 minute period. This can give your doctor valuable information to insure your baby receives the best possible prenatal care.

  • A non-greasy gel will be applied to your skin during the exam.
  • The sonographer will use a hand-held transducer (probe) against your pelvis to obtain images of your baby and pelvic organs.
