During the scan, we will keep you informed about the parts of fetal anatomy displayed on the screen. If you wish to see the real image of your future baby, you can ask us to add the 3D-4D scan. We will be happy to do this imaging option for you.
At the end of the scan we will calculate your individual risk for the most frequent fetal chromosomal defects and the risk of pre-eclampsia and fetal growth restriction.
After the scan, we counsell you through the significance of the risks of defects and the various options for further testing. If you decide to opt for invasive testing, we offer to perform this, often on the day of your scan. If you decide to have alternate methods for reassessment of the risk of frequent chromosomal defects (NIPT, genetic ultrasound), we would be happy to offer these tests to you at our centre.
The complete examination, which includes the counselling, takes around 45 minutes and you are welcome to bring your partner or someone close to accompany you through the process. From us, you will receive two printed images of your baby and a detailed report with the results will be sent to you by email within a week.
