Ultrasound Scans

Ultrasound scans have been used in medicine for decades. Combined with 3D/4D technology, ultrasound offers impressive image resolution and quality. Combined with color Doppler, it provides valuable information on blood flow and vasculature in the area being examined.

With the General Electric VOLUSON 730 ultrasound scanner, with με 2,5 MHz- 12MHz 3D-4D triplex & power Doppler probes, we can provide the following ultrasound scans:

Pregnancy Scans

•The first pregnancy scan, usually scheduled between week 5 and week 7 – this confirms the pregnancy and the embryo’s heart beat
•Week 11 – 13: Nuchal translucency scan (NT scan) and PAPP-Α
•Week 16 – 18: a-test
•B-level scan, usually between weeks 20 and 24
•Weeks 31- 34: developmental scan using colored Doppler imaging of the umbilical and uterine arteries
•Biophysical profile, towards the end of the pregnancy, when we need to estimate how safe it is to wait for delivery. This can be combined with a color Doppler test of the umbilical and uterine arteries of the mother, as well as the brain arteries of the foetus.
