why should i get a chronicity scan?

If carrying twins: Twins may or may not be at risk of the blood vessels from which they get nutrition and oxygen from the mother being shared. This sort of scan is intended to help determine that. If there is such sharing then there is risk of a "twin-twin transfusion" that can cause severe problems, usually for the baby that receives too much blood.
