How will a 20-week ultrasound change what we do?

Is there anything that will show up on a fetal anatomical survey that will materially influence what we do for the rest of the pregnancy and/or delivery? We don't care about things like missing fingers or feet, or cleft lips and we don't want to know the child's sex before birth. There's a blood test for spina bifida and the early risk assessment showed a very low risk of chromosomal abnormalities. Can we just skip this ultrasound?
