It's known as anamoly or target scan it is preferably be done between 18 to 22 weeks of pregnancy.... It is done in order to detect fetal abnormalities that may compromise the quality of life, and gives the parents options for treatment or termination of the pregnancy in case anamoly found...I would suggest you to consult your obg specialist and discuss the issue they will guide you properly.
