    ICU Ultrasound Scans
    cover the full term of pregnancy
    from the 6th week

A World I Never Pictured*

after the 6th week

*Please note the special requirements for this early pregnancy scan below.

This is a 5-10 minute 2D ultrasound scan session and you will get a black and white photo as well as one CD of all your images. At this stage, we can confirm the presence and number of embryo(s) and gestational sac(s) as well as assess the gestational age. This can also be known as a “dating scan”. We can confirm the presence of a heartbeat and check the size of the embryo to ensure the baby is the right size for predicted gestational age. We can also ensure if the embryo has implanted within the uterus or there is a chance for an ectopic pregnancy.

The scan includes a blood test to check the viability of your pregnancy. Cost of blood test is included in the price of the scan.

This early pregnancy scan is only available if you fulfill either of the following requirements:

  • You are a registered patient of The Heights Medical Centre for primary care, OR
  • You provide us a letter from your GP stating your previous medical history AND  your blood test result for hCG done 48 hours before your appointment.

If you are not a patient registered to The Heights Medical Centre and fail to provide documents detailed above, ICU Studio reserves the right to refuse your appointment request and/or to perform the scan.
