Frequently Asked Questions

Why choose to have an anomaly scan?
The anomaly scan is ideal for parents looking for reassurance or a secondary option when an earlier screening test has not been performed. It is also another opportunity to assess your baby’s well being when an elevated risk has been recorded during an NT scan and an invasive procedure is not your preferred route.

Sometimes called a detailed anatomy scan or the 20 week scan, an anomaly scan looks at the fine details of your baby such as the head, chest, heart, stomach, kidneys and limbs and possible ultrasound “soft markers” - slight deviations from the normal anatomy which may or may not indicate a problem.
What if my scan shows something is wrong or I need help after my appointment?

Very rarely, there may be a problem that is totally unexpected and we are the bearers of bad news.

Never easy to hear, we will ensure you have the time, support and a plan of care arranged. We will continue our course of support for as long as you need us.

If you become concerned about any aspect of your scan, the images and recordings you have taken home or you wish to make a complaint, you can contact the clinic where you had your scan and our staff will discuss any concerns that you may have.
