Your choice of a free rescan may be appropriate if we are unable to perform the primary purpose of this scan.
In this case, the sonographer (the person who does the scan) will discuss the scan findings with you and arrange for a doctor to see you.
Pregnancy ultrasounds are performed mainly using transabdominal ultrasound.
The dating scan is an ultrasound scan that can be done as early as six weeks after the last period, but the dating scan will be most accurate when done between 8 and 12 weeks gestation.
For instance a dating scan done at 6 weeks could get the date wrong five days either way.
A scan at 12 weeks could get the date wrong seven days either way and a scan done at 20 weeks could get the date wrong up to ten days either way.
It will capture key information allowing ladies to feel reassured and in a position to make key decisions such as sharing the pregnancy with family and friends.
Very rarely, there may be a problem that is totally unexpected and we are the bearers of bad news.
