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 fetal medicine specialist/sonographer.
At MUMS we check the development of the following structures:
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.
What do I need to do in preparation for the scan?
Preparation: No specific preparation is required.
Handheld hospital notes: Please bring these with you on the day.
Appointment length: Your appointment is booked for 30 minutes, of which you can expect approximately 15-20 minutes of scanning time. If the baby is in a position where is it difficult to obtain images we will send you for a walk and then rescan you.
