Ultrasound and Screening for Women in Reading, Berkshire

Detailed Anomaly

18 – 24 weeks. £169


The anomaly scan is an important part of your antenatal care. It provides a detailed anatomical check of the structures of the baby from head to toe, measurements to check baby’s growth and looks for the first signs of  any potential genetic disorders. This scan is commonly known as the 20 week scan, as it is usually performed between 18 to 24 weeks because some anomalies cannot be seen earlier than this.

All pregnant women in the UK under the antenatal care of the NHS will be offered this scan. However, if for any reason you would like to have an anomaly scan performed privately, we can provide this for you. All of our sonographers are fully qualified and experienced in obstetrics so will be able to answer any questions you may have.

Gender confirmation can be included during this appointment if you would like to know. Depending on the baby’s position, if we have time, we will also offer to show you the baby in 3D free of charge.

If you are carrying twins or a multiple pregnancy, please let us know when you book. We need to allow more time for multiple pregnancies and charge an extra £60.
