Have you reached that all important mid-way mark?

From 19 weeks onward, our private anomaly scan is designed to take a detailed look at how your growing baby is developing physically and will look out for any abnormalities. This scan is routinely offered as your 20-week scan by the NHS.

Our detailed anomaly scan will specifically look at the anatomical structures of your growing baby. This includes an analysis of the head, chest, stomach, kidneys, limbs, spine and heart. Four specific measurements will be taken during your anomaly scan, which include the head circumference (HC), abdominal circumference (AC), femur length (FL) and the bilateral diameter (BPD).

Your private anomaly scan will be performed by a qualified sonographer with extensive obstetric scanning experience, so you can be sure Ultrasound Plus will spot any physical abnormalities found during your scan. It is recommended that you report anything found during this scan to your GP/Healthcare.

What is the purpose of an anomaly scan?

Your 19 to 24 week anomaly scan is designed to take measurements of your baby at their expected gestation age. It will also perform a detailed analysis of your baby’s anatomical structures to look out for any physical abnormalities. Your placental position will also be identified, and if you would like the gender confirmed we can do so during your scan.

Anomaly Scan FAQs

Can an anomaly scan detect Down’s Syndrome?

An anomaly scan is not designed to detect down syndrome, but if we find any indications on the baby’s organs that there may be a risk of Down’s Syndrome we will let you know. We recommend you then pass this information onto your GP/healthcare provider to take further testing.

Do I need to drink anything before my appointment?

To ensure we have the best view of your baby, we recommend you drink at least 1 litre of water prior to your appointment. If you can drink more this is great, but don’t make yourself uncomfortable.

Who will perform my anomaly scan?

Your anomaly scan will be performed by one of our qualified sonographers. Each of our sonographers are accredited by either the Health Professional Council, The General Medical Council, Society of Radiographers or the Royal College of Midwives.

Can an anomaly scan be done at 24 weeks?

Yes, we provide private anomaly scans up to 24 weeks gestation.

Can an anomaly scan detect the gender of my baby?

Yes, we can detect the gender of your baby during your anomaly scan if you would like to know.

Do I need to bring anything along to my appointment?

In case a referral is needed, we recommend bringing your hospital notes (if you have them) to help assist our sonographers.

Do I still need to visit the NHS if I had a scan at Ultrasound Plus?

You still need to visit the NHS even if you’ve had a scan with Ultrasound Plus. We provide a complimentary service alongside the NHS.

What happens in terms of referrals?

It is important to let your GP/midwife know if you plan to have an anomaly scan with us at Ultrasound Plus. Prior to your appointment, we will provide you with a registration form which will also require your GP/midwife’s details. It is your responsibility to let them know the results of your scan.

How many guests/children can come with me to my anomaly scan?

You are able to bring up to five guests with you to experience your scan.
