This scan is typically performed between 6 and 10 weeks gestation. The sonographer will examine your uterus and your growing gestation.
The exam will provide critical information about your pregnancy such as its viability, its size, its age and its location within your pelvis.
18 - 20 Week Morphology Scan
This is a very detailed, very important scan. Not only will the sonographer assess very tiny details of your unborn baby, they will also check on you, your uterus, your ovaries and your placenta.
Your baby will be examined from head to toe. Whilst this scan may detect many structural problems, not all abnormalities are able to be detected. This scan may take longer if your baby has settled into an unusual position.
Growth Scans in the 3rd Trimester
Occasionally the doctor may refer you for a scan in the third trimester of pregnancy.
This study allows us to track the growth of your unborn baby, assess placental function by use of Doppler studies, check placental position, assess the amniotic fluid surrounding the baby and review various structures and organs. We can usually provide an estimated fetal weight at this time.
Non-diagnostic Obstetric Ultrasound
Non-Diagnostic obstetric studies are non-referred scans. You will not require a doctor’s referral for any of these visits. There is no Medicare rebate for these scans and as such there will be a fee.
These scans are a fun and enjoyable experience for the family. Your baby will not be examined for any abnormalities during these scans and as such you will still need to have diagnostic ultrasounds throughout your pregnancy as requested by your doctor. Please call to discuss and make a booking.
We offer gender determination studies from 15 weeks. This will include some printed images for you to take home. A USB with all of your images can also be purchased at an extra charge upon your request.
We offer 3D scans from 15 weeks, although the best and most life like imaging is performed after 28 weeks gestation. This will include a series of printed images for you to take home. A USB with all of your images can be purchased at an extra charge upon your request.
