This test measures blood flow in different parts of your baby's body including:

  • Umbilical cord
  • Brain
  • Liver
  • Heart

This allows your physician to get instantaneous feedback of your baby’s overall health. Usually, this test is performed at the same time as an ultrasound and uses the same equipment.
