Our Viability Scan offers early pregnancy assurance to mums from as little as 6 weeks (based on your LMP).Each of our early pregnancy scans come complete with a medical report.It is important to understand that it is not possible to diagnose all abnormalities using ultrasound.This is particularly the case for heart and brain abnormalities where only 60% of all abnormalities are detected using ultrasound.The best time to do a 3/4D scan is between 26 and 32weeks.It is difficult to influence the baby’s position but time is set aside to allow the baby to wake and move around if necessary.Factors which influence the quality of the image obtained are the age of the pregnancy (better at 22 weeks than 18), the position of the baby and the patient's bodyweight (image quality tends to be poorer if the woman is heavy) .
The best quality 3/4D images are obtained between 24 and 30 weeks gestation.
From examining the baby for normal development, through to sexing the baby, estimating the baby's size and providing 3D and 4D images, modern ultrasound equipment and technical expertise enables women to avail themselves of a full pregnancy ultrasound service. The principal reason is for reassurance that the pregnancy is progressing satisfactorily and that the baby's heartbeat is present.
The age of the pregnancy is easily determined through ultrasound measurement and the presence of one, two or more babies is established.
In the unusual situation where an abnormality is found or suspected, the significance of this will be explained and a plan of management discussed.
Still and moving images from the detailed scan are recorded to CD/DVD.This includes an examination of the major organs such as the brain, face, spine, heart, stomach, kidneys, bladder, upper and lower limbs and genitalia (sexing) if requested.
