Affordable Private Ultrasound Scans in London.

An ultrasound scan is a painless diagnostic test using high frequency sound waves to create images of organs and other structures inside your body. There is no radiation exposure and the sound used believed to be harmless. A probe is placed on your skin, over the part of the body being examined. The sounds generated are sent to the scanner monitor that shows real-time images of the underlying body structures.

Are baby scans harmful to the foetus?

Diagnostic sonography as otherwise known is a safe, painless diagnostic imaging technique. The technology uses sound waves to produce internal images of the body and therefore is not harmful to the unborn child.
It is called ultra sound as the sound frequency being used is at the region of 1 to 20MHz. The human ear can’t hear these frequencies.
The sound waves are produced by the scanner and transmitted by the transducer or the probe as most commonly known. As they travel through the body they bounce back to the transducer due to various sound transmissions differences in tissues. The returning echoes are picked up by the probe and a powerful computer analyses the echoes and creates the 2d image on the screen. Pregnacy ultrasound does not use ionising radiation and it is therefore safe to the unborn baby and the mother.

 

What is the difference between 2d and 4D Scans?

A 4D scan uses sound waves like a regular pregnancy scan. Although the exposure to the unborn child is slightly higher than the 2D scan there is no research to suggest that the scan is harmfull to the foetus. In our clinic we have choosen to not offer 3D and 4D ultrasound as we follow the national diagnostic guidlines.

 

What are ultrasounds used for?


There are various kinds of ultrasound screening tests that can be performed and each looks at different organs of the body such as tendons, muscles, joints, blood vessels, liver, kidneys, uterus and ovaries to confirm or exclude possible pathology.
Ultrasound scanning does not use radiation such as the CT and x-rays and therefore is pregnancy friendly. It is also live and is ideal for musculo-skeletal exams to visualise movement and function of joints or see the baby movements live during the antenatal scan.
