Early Pregnancy Ultrasound

What is an early pregnancy assessment ultrasound?

The first 12 weeks of a pregnancy are often an anxious time for parents especially women with a history of miscarriage

At Fertility Imaging we can minimize your anxiety by providing an early pregnancy assessment scan for you.

An early pregnancy assessment ultrasound is a high resolution transvaginal ultrasound scan that occurs between approximately 7-12 weeks gestation.  This highly specialized scan is carried out by our qualified ultrasonographers and takes approximately 15 minutes.

Why would I need a first trimester/dating ultrasound?

  • To confirm the presence of a gestation sac
  • To confirm your baby’s heartbeat.
  • To confirm the correct dates of your pregnancy
  • If you have bleeding or cramps and want to confirm ongoing pregnancy
  • History of ectopic pregnancy

All early pregnancy scans must have a GP referral letter or be a registered patient of Arlington House medical centre.
