Types of ultrasound examinations

You can read our patient information leaflets on:

  • Your pregnancy dating scan - maternity information
  • Your 20 week anomaly scan - maternity information
  • Pelvic ultrasound scan - maternity information
  • Pelvic ultrasound scan (full bladder) - maternity information

In addition to the dating and anomaly scan, some women will have more scans during their pregnancy:

  • Women who have been referred by their GP to the early pregnancy unit due to problems such as bleeding will have a scan.
  • At the routine scan, if the placenta appears low, a further scan will be performed between 32 to 34 weeks to ensure no placenta tissue is near the cervix.
  • Growth scan are performed in later stages of pregnancy if there is a query about the growth of a baby. These are performed between 28 to 40 weeks. You may be referred by your GP, midwife or consultant obstetrician.
