Private pregnancy scanning, including 3D and 4D scans, from a leading specialist in obstetric ultrasound based in London.
Mr Demetrios Economides is Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist at the Royal Free Hospital, and Senior Lecturer in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Royal Free and University College School of Medicine. Internationally recognised as an authority on obstetric ultrasound and problems in early pregnancy, Mr Economides offers pregnancy scanning at three private hospitals in London and a private outpatient clinic in Harley Street.
Private pregnancy scanning in London
Mr Economides is the founder of Myscan, a service that offers private pregnancy scanning performed by expert and highly experienced staff, using the latest ultrasound technology, including 3D and 4D scanning. Myscan is available at four convenient locations in London: The Royal Free Hospital, The Portland Hospital, The Hospital of Saint John and Saint Elisabeth, and The Birth Company at 137 Harley Street.
Pregnancy ultrasound scans available at Myscan
MyScan offers the full range of pregnancy and fetal screening scans, including:
Fetal viability scan: performed at 6-10 weeks this scan establishes that there is a viable embryo present and that the pregnancy is not ectopic. The number of embryos can also be determined.
Nuchal translucency scan: a screening scan to detect Down's syndrome. 90% effective when used in conjunction with the mother's age and a blood test, this scan must be performed between 11 and 14 weeks.
Fetal anomaly scan: performed at 20-22 weeks, this scan can detect up to 70% of serious fetal abnormalities. As an expert in Fetal Medicine, Mr Economides is available to offer advice should any problem be detected.
Fetal wellbeing scan: this scan is used to determine that a baby is growing and moving as expected, that the placenta is correctly positioned and there is sufficient amniotic fluid, and that the blood flow to the placenta and fetus is healthy. It is usually performed at 24-42 weeks, but can be performed at regular intervals in high risk or problematic pregnancies.
Cervical competence scan: performed at regular intervals if necessary, from 12 to 34 weeks, to check that the cervix is not opening prematurely.
Expert 3D and 4D ultrasound pregnancy scanning
Mr Economides is one of the country's leading experts on the use of
3D and 4D ultrasound scanning in pregnancy, and conducts all such scans
performed at Myscan personally. Although not a replacement for the series of 2D antenatal ultrasound scans, 3D and 4D scanning
produces a lifelike image of the fetus where some parts of the body,
for example the face, can be clearly seen and detailed movements can be
observed. These scans are usually performed between 25 and 32 weeks and
cost £100. Mr Economides makes a full check of the baby and provides a
detailed scan report. Many people also enjoy 'meeting' their baby for
the first time this way, and a DVD recording and colour photographs are
also provided as part of the service.
