What are the different types of pregnancy ultrasound scan?

Ultrasound scans are safe and versatile. They can provide insights into your baby’s size, position, health and gender throughout your pregnancy.

Early Scan - 6 to 4 weeks

Our private early pregnancy scans last 15 minutes, and can confirm a pregnancy, see if it is viable, count the number of babies, check for a heartbeat, and provide a due date estimate.

Dating Scan: 12-16 weeks

This 15 minute scan can determine gestation and date your baby. The scan can be used to check the number of babies and check they are growing in the right place.

Growth Scan: 22-38 weeks

This 15 minute scan checks your baby’s development in the second half of your pregnancy. You’ll receive growth and weight estimates, and fetal presentation and placental site details.

Anomaly Scan: 18-24 weeks

This longer 30-40 minute scan provides detailed analysis of your baby’s anatomy. It will check baby’s bones, heart, brain, spinal cord, face and vital organs for any abnormalities.

What is an ultrasound scan?

And how does it work?

Ultrasound is a safe and popular medical imaging method, used to create pictures (sonograms) of your baby, without using radiation.

The ultrasound scanner, also known as a transducer, emits high-frequency sound waves, which bounce off your bodily tissues and the baby. This includes bone, soft tissue and fluid. The echoes created are recorded, and used to generate images on a screen in real-time.

How soon can pregnancy be detected with an ultrasound scan?

We offer private early pregnancy scans from as soon as 6 weeks into your pregnancy. At this time, it is possible for a sonographer to confirm your pregnancy, and check whether it is viable. Most early pregnancies do not incur any complications, but an early scan can check for ectopic pregnancy, rule out any major abnormalities or risks, and visualise a heartbeat.

How long do ultrasound scans take?

Depending on the type of scan you have selected, the appointment can range from 15-40 minutes. We also ask patients to arrive at their chosen scanning centre 15 minutes before the scan is due to start. After your scan, you might be asked to wait while your images and any written information is compiled for you to take away with you.
