What should I expect during the growth scan?

Before the ultrasound scan, our sonographer will explain the examination procedure.

This scan is normally performed trans-abdominally. In some instances, it may be necessary to perform an internal (transvaginal scan) in order to assess the placental position or to visualise the foetal head if the baby does not change position.

A small amount of water-based gel will be applied to your skin. The gel will help the transducer to make good contact with the skin. The ultrasound transducer will be placed on the body and will be moved in different directions over the area of interest to obtain the required information/ultrasound images.

There is usually no discomfort from pressure as the transducer or probe as otherwise known,  is pressed against the area being examined. However, if scanning is performed over an area of tenderness, you may feel pressure or minor discomfort from the transducer.

Once the ultrasound imaging is completed, the clear ultrasound gel will be wiped off your skin. Any portions that are not wiped off will dry quickly. The ultrasound gel does not usually stain or discolour clothing.

This ultrasound examination is usually completed within 20-25 minutes. After an ultrasound examination, you should be able to resume your normal activities immediately.

Frequent Questions

An obstetric scan is the same as a ‘normal’ scan but is being used to evaluate the overall health of your unborn baby instead of looking at other organs such as gallbladder for gallstones  or  kidney for kidney stones. So in pregnancy ultrasound scans are being used to visualise the baby, the placenta, the uterus and cervix and your ovaries.
Pregnancy ultrasound scans or prenatal ultrasounds are very common and being carried in any stage of the pregnancy.

You will normally offered two diagnostic ultrasound scans during your pregnancy from the NHS. The first pregnancy  scan is at 12 weeks of gestation and called a dating scan. The second pregnancy scan is at 20 weeks of pregnany and called an anomaly scan.

Diagnostic Medical ultrasound scan or medical sonography as otherwise known is a painless imaging technique  utilising sound waves to produce internal images of the body.
It is called ultrasound as the sound frequency being used is at the region of 1 to 20MHz. The  human ear cant can’t hear these frequencies.
The sound waves are produced 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 differences in tissues. The returning echoes are picked up by the probe and a powerful computer analyses the echoes and creates the image on the screen.
There are various kinds of ultrasound scans 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.
Unlike Ct and MRI, ultrasound does not use radiation and therefore is pregnancy friendly. It is also live and is ideal for musculo-skeletal exams to evaluate moving joints.
