Objective: ultrasound imaging based on nanobubbles was used as the examination method in this study. Abdominal examination was performed on patients with and without diabetes during pregnancy, and the examination data between patients in different groups were compared and analyzed. Methods: 74 pregnant women were selected and enrolled in this study. Thirty-five pregnant women with diabetes were enrolled in the experimental group (Exp group) and 39 pregnant women without diabetes were assigned to the control group (Ctrl group). Results: there were no significant differences in fetal abdominal circumference, femoral length, and biparietal diameter between the two groups. The liver length and head circumference in the Exp group were higher based on the Ctrl group, with a statistical significance. Moreover, the occurrence probability of abnormal fetal growth and development indexes in the Exp group was higher and exhibited a statistical significance to that in the Ctrl group. Conclusion: patients with diabetes were more likely to have abnormal pregnancies. It is necessary to adopt color examination for clinical screening of diabetic pregnant women, so that the life safety of pregnant women and fetus can be guaranteed, reflecting the good application prospect of ultrasound examination.
