City Ultrasound

Where Technology Meets Expertise

We are Fetal Health Specialists – London Ultrasound Centre 


Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a reassuring experience in your pregnancy journey through using our extensive expertise and advanced ultrasound technology. 

Our vision is that all parents deserve to know about health of their baby as early as possible and to have the most thorough examinations of the baby’s development during all periods of pregnancy. We have carefully designed a scanning schedule which we believe is optimal for the diagnosis at the earliest possible stage, namely from 12 weeks. Our scans are supported by the latest medical advancements and the personal expertise of our Founder and Medical Director, Dr Fred Ushakov.

Meet the Doctor: Dr Fred Ushakov

Dr Fred Ushakov has over 30 years of experience working in various Fetal Medicine Units and Ob Gyn Departments in three countries. From the beginning of his career, Fred saw the immense potential in the use of ultrasound in obstetric and perinatology and has decided to dedicate his professional life to mastering ultrasound techniques and researching new methods. Dr Ushakov is currently working at the UCLH Fetal Medicine Unit where he was recognised by his colleagues as the most skilled ultrasound operator.

Dr Ushakov’s passion for ultrasound led to the establishment of the London School of Ultrasound, where he has lectured doctors and sonographers from over 100 countries. Dr Ushakov’s excellence and contribution to the field has been recognised as he has been appointed as the Ambassador of ISUOG (The International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynaecology).

Fred is also founder and organiser of unique Early Fetal Scan (EF scan) Conference. The EF Scan Conference is an annual scientific event, which aims to raise professional awareness to early diagnosis and management of different fetal anomalies.

Meet the Doctor: Dr Giovanni Granozio

Dr. Giovanni Granozio is a Fetal Medicine ultrasound specialist currently holding a post at Royal London Hospital. He qualified at the University of Salerno in 2013, and completed his specialization in Gynaecology and Obstetrics at the University of Turin – Saint Anna Hospital in 2019, one of the largest medical centres in Europe.

During his training he focused on Fetal Medicine and Obstetric Ultrasound and in particular on the fetal examination during the 1st, 2nd and 3rd trimesters of pregnancy. He came to London in 2020 to pursue a Clinical Fellowship at the Fellowship in Fetal Medicine in UCLH where he had the opportunity to perfect his knowledge in Fetal Medicine and Obstetric Ultrasound. Following that he also completed a stint at Royal Free Hospital NHS trust as a Clinical Fellow in Fetal Medicine.

Currently he works as ultrasound specialist in Fetal Medicine at Royal London Hospital where he performs pregnancy screening scans. Giovanni’s interests are in ultrasound examination in pregnancies complicated by fetal anomalies, growth restricted babies, and twin pregnancies.

City Ultrasound imaging services: Distinctive characteristics

The Centre

Our Clinic is conveniently located in the City of London. We have invested in all the latest technology, including a 2020 Voluson E10, extra-high-resolution probes, and a Tricefy cloud server where you can view your scan images and reports as soon as you finish your appointment.

We only have one scanning room and all the scans are performed by Dr Ushakov himself. All our staff are dedicated to serving a single mother and her family at all times.

Most importantly, we follow a scientific medical approach and do not offer ‘entertainment scans.’ Our primary concern is your baby’s health and as a result we do not offer sexing/keepsake images 3D/4D scans. We are more than happy to provide these free of charge as a part of your scan where possible, after having completed a thorough examination of your baby’s heart, brain, other organs, and its growth and development.

Fred’s dream was always to open a London Ultrasound Centre where he can offer outstanding, professional and caring diagnostic services.
