Detailed pregnancy scan

Detailed Scan and Uterine Artery Doppler (18-24 weeks)
Cost: £190

The 20 week Detailed  Scan is an important examination of the fetal anatomy. This scan also  includes checking the position of the placenta, the level of amniotic fluid and the baby’s size.


How is the scan performed?

Anomaly scans are performed  ‘transabdominally’ which means over the tummy. 

What information can I expect from this scan?

A scan can never guarantee that a baby will be born healthy and ‘normal’, but it gives very strong reassurance. As all scans at Cambridge Fetal Care are performed by experienced Fetal Medicine Consultants, this enables you to ask questions or raise concerns regarding scan findings straight away. 


How to prepare for your scan   

No preparation is required prior to this scan. However, on occasion the baby may be in a particularly difficult position and we may ask that you walk about for 15 minutes or so or fill or empty your bladder as this helps us to obtain the very best views.


General information

We are very happy to give photographs at the time of the scan; there is no charge for this but the quality of the picture may depend on the baby taking up a photogenic position!


After the scan, we will give you a follow up form. We should be very grateful, as part of our audit and quality control, if you would return this after your pregnancy.

"I had all of my scans done through Cambridge Fetal Care. From the early reassurance of my 8 week scan through to the 20 week scan, the professional service was second to none. In addition, the convenience of evening scans arranged at a suitable time for us was exactly what we needed as we both work full-time. Unreservedly and highly recommended."
