What are Fetal Medicine Scans?

Fetal Medicine Scans, also known as prenatal or antenatal scans, are specialized ultrasound examinations performed during pregnancy to assess the well-being and development of the fetus. These scans are essential for identifying and managing any potential complications and providing valuable insights into your baby's health. Fetal medicine scans can be conducted at various stages of pregnancy to monitor different aspects of fetal growth and development.

The Fetal Medicine Scan Process:

  • Consultation
  • Your journey begins with an in-depth consultation with our fetal medicine specialists. During this discussion, your medical history, any pre-existing conditions, and the purpose of the scan will be reviewed.

  • Choice of Scan
  • Depending on your specific needs, our experts will recommend the most appropriate scan for your pregnancy stage and concerns.

  • The Scan Procedure
  • Our experienced sonographers will perform the scan, using a transducer that emits sound waves to create images of the baby. You will be asked to lie on an examination table, and a water-based gel will be applied to your abdomen to enhance the image quality. The sonographer will gently move the transducer to capture images from various angles, while measurements and observations are recorded.

  • Analysis and Consultation
  • Following the scan, our specialists will analyze the images and measurements to assess the health and development of the fetus. If any concerns or anomalies are identified, you will receive expert guidance on the next steps and any necessary follow-up tests or treatments.

  • Ongoing Support
  • Throughout your pregnancy, our team will provide you with support, information, and advice to ensure the health and well-being of both you and your baby.
