Cardiac Screen Ltd are expert medical consultants in London who specialise in diagnostic scanning for a variety of medical conditions including chest pain and heart problems, thyroid gland disorders, male and female reproductive problems, stroke or suspected cancer.
They can also perform abdominal ultrasounds and transvaginal ultrasounds.
A transvaginal ultrasound can give a clear picture of a woman’s reproductive tract and can detect any growths such as fibroids or ovarian cysts, pelvic infections, malformations of the uterus or ovaries or to diagnose unexplained pain during early pregnancy.
If you are in the first trimester of your pregnancy and you have been experiencing pain or bleeding or you have a previous history of miscarriage and you want reassurance, a transvaginal ultrasound can put your mind at ease.
It can be used to evaluate:
- The presence of your baby
- The number of babies
- The gestational age of the baby or babies
- The position of the baby in the womb
- The fetal heartbeat
- The function of the placenta and any placental abnormalities or bleeding
- The source of any bleeding
An early pregnancy scan can tell you if your pregnancy is viable.
Later Pregnancy Scan
If you want to have a later pregnancy scan, these are available too. You can book one for bonding purposes or to discover the gender of your baby earlier than you can on the NHS. Baby gender is not confirmed by the NHS until 20-22 weeks of pregnancy but it can be accurately detected from as early as 16 weeks.
You can also choose to have all your antenatal scans privately with Cardiac Screen Ltd at a time that suits you and with state of the art ultrasound machines. Other scans include fetal well-being (to check growth of the baby if there are any concerns about intrauterine growth retardation) and placental sufficiency scans.
You can choose to have extra scans to see your little one and obtain beautiful scan pictures to treasure for life. These non-medical scans are not available on the NHS. The stunning images can show you what your baby looks like before he is born or show the baby’s activities in the womb (such as thumb sucking, stretching and ‘smiling’.
