Anomaly scan

Anomaly Scan

Performed between 20 and 24 weeks

This is an important scan which usually referred as the ‘20-week scan‘ that is performed at gestational age of 20 to 24 weeks to examine major parts of the fetal body and to check for common structural anomalies according to the FASP* guidance.

The main purpose of the anomaly scan is to take a detailed look at your baby’s development to check for any potential problems. During the scan we determine the position of the placenta, assess the amount of amniotic fluid, and measure fetal growth. Special attention is paid to the brain, face, spine, heart, stomach, bowel, kidneys, and limbs.

If you are contacting us for a second opinion, please make sure you provide us with your reports before the appointment.

Please note that ultrasound anomaly screening cannot detect all possible conditions. Even if your scan result suggests everything is normal, we cannot guarantee the absence of the rare anormalies.

We ask you to have a full bladder so that a transabdominal scan gives us best possible visualisation and information, we recommend that you drink at least 0.5 litre of water before your scan. If possible, please refrain from emptying your bladder just before your scan.

Any concern will be reported for you to communicate with your Healthcare provider.
