In brief: A lot of details.

Fetal gender, anatomy in detail (including brain, heart, spine, kidneys, extremities), amniotic fluid volume, due date estimation within 10 days of actual date, cervical and uterine anomaly detection, placental location and pathology.
It is a very cost-effective test for any pregnancy and should be universally performed.

In brief: Anatomy

At 20 weeks, a fetal ultrasound will assess the fetus size, heart rate, position and anatomy.
The exam will also look at the placenta and the amniotic fluid.
