Pregnancy Scans

Mr Salvesen is an expert in pregnancy ultrasound scans. However at Pinehill Hospital Mr Salvesen can only scan upto 19 weeks gestation.

 

Viability / dating scan (6-13 weeks)

A viabilty / dating scan is performed from 6 weeks up to 12 weeks gestation. The scan is performed either through the abdomen or in very early pregnancy often through the vagina. The scan is useful for confirming that the fetus is alive by seeing fetal heart activity and therefore in excluding a miscarriage. The scan is also useful in excluding an ectopic pregnancy. The prregnancy can be dated by measuring the length of the bay, the crown rump length (CRL). This ultrasound scan does not screen for any fetal chromosomal or structural abnormalities.

 

Growth Scan / wellbeing scan (14 weeks -19 weeks)

A growth/reassurance scan can performed from 14 weeks up to 19 weeks gestation. The scan is performed either through the abdomen. The scan is useful for confirming that the fetus is alive by seeing fetal heart activity and therefore in excluding a miscarriage. The scan can also be used to date the pregnancy if an earlier scan has not been performed. This ultrasound scan does not screen for any fetal chromosomal or structural abnormalities.
