Our Pregnancy and Gynaecology Ultrasound Scans

As specialists in pregnancy and gynaecology scans, we offer a wide range of private ultrasound scans in Cheshire. We can provide all the scans that you need during pregnancy or perform the tests that your gynaecologist or GP has recommended.

What is Ultrasound and Why Do We Use It?

Ultrasound scans are a type of imaging test that uses soundwaves that are above the human range of hearing. We use an ultrasound probe to send these soundwaves into your body. Some of the ultrasound waves will bounce back to the probe when they cross into different types of tissue. The probe collects these echoes so that they can be converted into pictures. The process works in a similar way to bats using echolocation to see. We will be able to see clear images of your insides on the screen in real time.

Ultrasound enables us to see what is going on inside your body, so it provides valuable information about your health. We will provide a full report including scan pictures that you can share with your doctor or midwife. The information we obtained from the scan can then help to guide your care.

Pregnancy Scans

We can provide all the scans that you need at every stage of your pregnancy, from an early pregnancy scan at just 7 weeks to a growth and wellbeing scan right before you give birth. You can visit us for any or all of the following scans.

  • Early Pregnancy Scan: confirm the pregnancy and get an estimated due date from just 7 weeks.
  • Nuchal Scan: an important check up that includes screening for Down’s syndrome.
  • Reassurance Scan: check in on your baby at any time between 14-24 weeks.
  • Sexing Scan: find out if your baby is a boy or girl with a scan after 16 weeks.
  • Anomaly Scan: another essential medical scan that includes a thorough check for any structural abnormalities.
  • Cervical Scan: an ultrasound to check your cervical length if you may be at risk of a weak cervix or premature birth.
  • Wellbeing Scan: see how much your baby has grown at any time between 24-40 weeks.
  • 4D Baby Scan: get a unique 3D picture of your baby’s face between 26-32 weeks.

Gynaecology Ultrasound Scans

Ultrasounds aren’t only used during pregnancy. We can also use them to diagnose gynaecological problems or to provide important information for your fertility clinic.

  • Full Pelvic Ultrasound: thorough check of your reproductive system to diagnose or evaluate conditions like fibroids or ovarian cysts.
  • Ovarian Screening Scan: checking your ovaries for any growths, such as cysts or ovarian cancer.
  • Follicle Tracking Scan: checking that you are ovulating or finding out when your eggs are ready to be collected during IVF.
  • Endometrial Lining Scan: examining your womb lining and measuring its thickness to see if you are ready to conceive or to have an embryo transferred during IVF.
