Anomaly Scan

At Grosvenor Gardens Healthcare, located in the prestigious areas of Belgravia and Dulwich, London, we offer expert anomaly scan services as part of our prenatal screening programme. This important ultrasound scan is performed during the second trimester and is crucial for assessing the physical development of your baby, providing peace of mind and early detection of potential issues.

Understanding Anomaly Scans

An anomaly scan, typically conducted between 18 to 21 weeks of pregnancy, is a detailed ultrasound examination of the baby. It assesses multiple aspects of fetal development, including the brain, heart, bones, spinal cord, face, kidneys, and abdominal organs to ensure that they are developing normally. This scan also checks the placenta’s position, the amount of amniotic fluid, and the baby’s growth.
