What is Viability Scan?

Viability scan is the first scan in pregnancy. In some places this type of scan called “Dating scan”, however our viability scan give you much more knowledge about your baby than just dates.

Main purposes:

  • Confirm viability 
  • Ascertain if it is a singleton or multiple pregnancy 
  • Dating of pregnancy (estimate gestational age and EDD)
  • To check main structures of the gestational sac: embryo, yolk sac, amnion, chorion (future placenta)
  • Detect major pregnancy abnormalities 

Why our Viability Scans are different?

We use an advanced ultrasound scanner with unique high resolution probes. 

  • We do NOT need your full bladder for the scan, please come for the scan with empty bladder
  • Our technology allows performance of the Viability Scan transabdominally in the majority of the cases
  • We check development of your pregnancy rather that just the dates

Why to perform Viability Scan may be important for you?

In NHS hospitals the first scan in pregnancy is Nuchal Translucency (NT) scan which performed at 11-13 weeks of pregnancy and have also function of Dating Scan. The limitation of this approach is less accurate EDD (estimated date of delivery) because the dating at 13 weeks is less accurate.

Viability scan allows for you:

  • Precise dating
  • Possibility to perform NIPT as early as possible (from 10 weeks) 
  • Detailed scheduling of your follow-up scans and planning other activities (for instance business trips and holidays) during pregnancy
