Both r different but can be done at the same time. Growth scan tells u about babies growth. Fetal Doppler measures the blood flow baby is getting through the umbilical chord. Doppler will tell u how much oxygen ur baby is getting.

Growth scan will give baby physical measurements , calculates baby wt, tells about baby movements n all. Doppler scan measures blood supply to baby from mother to baby and also within baby heart, brain . So they are different . both denote well being of ur baby ! :)
