Private Pregnancy scans in London

A pregnancy scan is a vital diagnostic component of a healthy pregnancy. We use ultrasounds to verify the health of your baby, ensuring proper prenatal care. We offer a pregnancy scan service, complementary to the NHS in our London ultrasound clinic.

If you are looking for an early pregnancy for reassurance in the early weeks in your pregnancy or a private baby scan to find your baby’s gender and get quick answers about your baby’s health, you can rest assured that our sonographers have the skills and the knowledge to provide you with the instant answers you need. The pregnancy ultrasound is a diagnostic scan that can help to reassure you that your pregnancy is normally progressing and detect any abnormalities. You can now book your appointment online or over the phone.

The baby scans are performed by highly qualified sonographers who perform precise ultrasound scans to help predict and diagnose any situation that might arise. Our patients benefit from early diagnosis and treatment of prenatal complications as well as routine obstretic scanning.

Most healthy women receive two ultrasound scans during pregnancy through the NHS. The first is in the first trimester to confirm the due date, and the second is at 18-22 weeks to confirm normal anatomy and possibly the sex of the baby.

    Highly recommend this clinic! They have a wide range of availability to accommodate the work day, and they were flexible with changes. Yianni was very professional, trusting, and friendly. He made us feel comfortable informed, and made our first “early scan” a really positive experience!!

    Attended today for an ultrasound on my shoulder as I have frozen shoulder. Tareq and his assistant Gina were highly professional and Tareq was informative about the procedure and findings during the scan. He was also helpful in making suggestions about further treatment. Would definitely recommend. His report was emailed to me within an hour if the scan.

    Incredibly quick and easy online booking process. I was researching in the early hours of the morning concerned about some blood results, and I was able to book an ultrasound for the same day at a very reasonable price. Tareq was wonderful and once I told him I had a medical background he explained the more detailed scan results to me clearly and reassuringly. Very happy with the service and would highly recommend. Thanks so much.

What is ultrasound?

Ultrasound is a non invasive diagnostic technique which uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of organs and structures inside your body. As the sound waves travel through your body, they reflect off tissues, sending information to a computer that interprets the waves and produces an image.

Your ultrasound may be performed transabdominally or transvaginally. A transabdominal ultrasound is the type used for pregnant women. The devices that emit sound waves, called the transducer, is moved across the abdomen, sending the waves down toward the uterus.

A transvaginal ultrasound uses a long, narrow transducer that’s placed inside the vagina. This method produces a clearer image of your pelvic organs, because it’s closer to reproductive organs.

How is ultrasound used in obstetrics?

Ultrasound is safe to use during pregnancy to evaluate the baby’s growth and development because it relies on sound waves rather than radiation. While ultrasounds are usually done during the first and second trimester, they can be performed any time during pregnancy.

First trimester ultrasounds aren’t routine, but they may verify a pregnancy, determine the location of the pregnancy, and be used to estimate the due date. Every pregnant woman receives a second trimester ultrasound to establish the size and position of the baby.

Your baby’s sex can often be identified when the second-trimester ultrasound is done after 20 weeks because the external genitalia are visible. In some cases, however, the image may not be clear or the baby’s position may block the view.

What is 3D and 4D ultrasound?

The 3D imaging, allows you to see the facial structure and anatomy as a static three-dimensional image of teh baby in the womb. The 4D ultrasound, allows you to see real-time images, such as movement, sometimes you can see the the baby yawning or sucking his/her thumb. At International Ultrasound Services, we follow the NICE, RCOG and BMUS safety guidlines recommended keep the exposure to the baby as low as reasonably possible (ALARA principle) and therefore we only perform 2d diagnostic ultrasound scans.

 

About  Pregnancy Scans

An obstetric scan is the same as a ‘normal’ scan but is being used to evaluate the overall health of your unborn baby instead of looking at other organs such as gallbladder for gallstones  or  kidney for kidney stones. So in pregnancy ultrasounds are being used to visualise the unborn baby, the placenta, the uterus and cervix and your ovaries.
Pregnancy ultrasound scans or prenatal ultrasounds are very common and being carried in any stage of the pregnancy.

When Is an Ultrasound Performed During Pregnancy?

You will normally offered two diagnostic ultrasound scans during your pregnancy from the NHS. The first pregnancy  scan is at 12 weeks of gestation and called a dating scan. The second pregnancy scan is at 20 weeks of pregnany and called an anomaly scan.
Most of the expectant mothers, especially the ones with previous complications such as miscarriage they do not believe that 2 ultrasound scans during pregnancy are enough  and this is the reason they choose to have a private pregnancy scan in London with us.
