No, using a lead apron over the abdomen during the scan of another body region does very little to reduce scatter radiation. This is because most of the scatter dose is deflected inside your body, and does not encounter the shield.

If it can be avoided if mandatory double lead shield which part is to be scanned

Always better to avoid If unavoidable, they try minimal exposure to radiation and use double lead shield to protect the foetus

It should be double covered if it is must otherwise postpone till delivery

No Exposure is 300 times more then xray

SOS . With all precautions.
