Anomaly Scan

This is a detailed scan during which each part of the baby’s anatomy is examined to check for development and to exclude structural abnormalities. This scan is performed between 18-24 weeks of pregnancy.

Anomaly scans are important because they provide the best opportunity to examine all the anatomy of your baby in great detail. The Anomaly scan is performed by a Senior Sonographer or Fetal Medicine Consultant.

An anomaly scan, also known as the 20 week scan, takes a detailed look at your baby's development. The clinician carrying out the scan will check that your baby is developing normally, and look at the placenta position.

This scan is usually performed between 18+0 to 23+6 weeks of pregnancy.

The main purpose of this scan is to exclude abnormalities in your unborn baby.

If you have had a NHS 20 week scan, but feel you want additional reassurance or to discuss the findings of your 20 week scan you should book a 2nd Opinion Scan.

If any abnormalities are detected, the significance of the findings will be discussed with you on the day and a referral to your booking hospital/screening team can be arranged for further management within the NHS system.

An Anomaly Scan includes:

  • Assesment of your baby's anatomy which includes head & brain, face, spine, heart, lungs, bowel, abdominal wall, kidneys and bladder, stomach, arms/hands/fingers, legs/feet/toes
  • Wellbeing which includes; fetal growth/estimated weight, amniotic fluid, placental position and function, umbilical cord insertion, presentation (position of baby)
  • Medical Report
  • USB Stick with images & video/clips
  • Printed Scan Images
