Anomaly Scan

What does an anomaly scan include?

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.

Gender Ultrasound FAQs

A gender ultrasound can be performed from 16-40 weeks gestation. However, we recommend a minimum booking of around 17 weeks, especially if you hold a higher BMI. Our sonographers will not disclose your baby’s sex unless they are 100% sure so it is important you book your Gender Ultrasound at the right time.
 
 
 
If we cannot determine the sex of your baby during your gender ultrasound, we will request you take a short walk or move around a bit until the baby moves into a different position. We will then attempt to rescan 3 times and if we are still unable to confirm the gender, we will invite you back free of charge for a five minute appointment to re-confirm your baby’s gender. This rescan is only available if you are over 16 weeks. If you have booked in before 16 weeks, you will need to pay in full again to confirm the gender at a later date.
 
We recommend you drink approximately 1 litre of water, a least 20 minutes prior to your gender ultrasound. If possible, drink more – but don’t make yourself uncomfortable.
 
 
Our team of friendly qualified sonographers will perform your gender ultrasound. They are accredited across many medical bodies and also work within the NHS alongside their role in Ultrasound Plus.
Please bring along your hospital notes (if you have them) so our sonographers can consult them if a referral is required.

Ultrasound Plus will advise you to discuss your findings with your GP &/or midwife. If you wish, Ultrasound Plus can also provide you with details on where you can receive further follow up tests.

It’s important to keep in mind that our scans do not replace the NHS pregnancy scans. As standard procedure, our scans include a well-being check and if any abnormalities are detected we will discuss it in full and provide a full report to your health practitioner.
 
 
 
As mentioned above, it is important you still go to your NHS scans as our gender ultrasounds are a complementary service which works alongside the NHS.

“We have now had 3 scans at the Brentwood branch, and the staff are lovely! This has been our favourite private clinic.. the sonographer Teresa is lovely, she explains everything in so much detail and doesn’t rush through the scan! No doubt we will be back again before our baby comes.”
