Dear Nethra Desai,
Your doctor must be having some reason to advise for a TIFFA Scan. It is Targeted Fetal Anomaly Scan. She may have noted some risk factor in your history or in the investigations she had asked you to do. This is like usual scan with the difference that this is done by an experienced sonologist who carefully examines each part of the fetus to see if he can detect any anomaly.
