Best week for 2nd tri fetal anatomy scan?

I've been looking around online and can only find ranges, so I'm wondering if there is a specific best week for the second trimester fetal anatomy scan? Best week for detecting any potential problems, is what I'm wondering about. I just called to schedule mine and they just asked me when I wanted it, didn't say when they thought I should do it (even when I asked specifically :shrug. I scheduled it for 19 weeks 2 days, but now wondering if I should wait an additional week and do it closer to 20 weeks? WDYT?

My peri's office scheduled mine for 19 weeks exactly and said that was "the best time" so I think that your date should be perfect.

I've always heard 20 weeks is the time they normally like to do it.

mine for 22 weeks no clue on best time. I was told the 2nd trimester screening(no clue the difference) should be done 16-18weeks. Maybe that scan they look more in depth?

I got mine done at 19 w 2 days! My doctor wanted it to be 18-20 if I remember correctly. As far as best week though, I'm not sure.
