Fetal Anomaly Scan

Fetal Anomaly Scan

The vast majority of babies are healthy but there’s a small chance of delivering a baby with birth defects. Performed between 20 to 24 weeks of the pregnancy, a fetal anomaly scan detects up to 90% of significant abnormalities.

This detailed ultrasound scan is used to diagnose structural abnormalities in the baby by examining the baby’s anatomy, checking the fetal growth, assessing placental position, and cervical status.

Special attention is paid to the brain, face, spine, heart, stomach, bowel, kidneys and limbs.
