Private ultrasound scans in pregnancy
Dr Pasupathy, a sub-specialist in fetal medicine, offers private maternity scans which include:
- Early pregnancy viability scan
This is usually performed soon after a positive pregnancy test in the first trimester.
- Dating and nuchal translucency scan
This scan is performed as part of the combined screen for Down’s Syndrome or part of the non-invasive prenatal diagnosis test. We will also provide the estimated date of delivery following this scan.
- Anomaly scan
This scan is performed between 18 – 22 weeks focused at detecting major fetal abnormalities. In most cases these scans are normal and in the unlikely event of detecting an abnormality, Dr Pasupathy as a sub-specialist in fetal medicine will discuss the findings and its’ implications and provide a detailed plan and options for the rest of the pregnancy.
- Wellbeing Scan
This scan will assess fetal growth, wellbeing and placental function and is usually performed late in the second trimester and in the third trimester.
- Cervical length scan
In women with a previous history of pre-term delivery or cervical treatment we will offer cervical length scans in pregnancy to assess the risk of pre-term delivery.
- Fetal sexing scan
- 3D / 4D scans
These scans nurture the bond between the expectant couple and their baby
