The Centre is headed by Dr. Darryl Maxwell, an experienced obstetrician who has delivered hundreds of babies in his time. He is the clinic's lead doctor, and is ably supported by an excellent staff of doctors and sonographers, each passionate about prenatal care.
The London Ultrasound Centre’s many services includes performing standard sonograms. This is as well as carrying out screenings for women's health issues, such as cervical cancer. This
is while checking for abnormalities in unborn children. It looks for signs of genetic disorders, such as Down Syndrome. It will also perform prenatal paternity tests, as well as monitoring the ovulation cycles of women trying to conceive.
The London Ultrasound Centre is furthermore renowned for its revolutionary 4D Baby Scans, that show mothers to be a moving image of their baby in real time.
The London Ultrasound Centre will do a fetal heart scan, or an echocardiogram, as standard. This procedure will ensure the patients' baby is healthy. Fetal heart scans are especially advisable if the mother has a family history of heart complications, or has another child with a heart defect or diabetes. If the baby's nuchal scan measures less than 2.5mm, then a heart scan is recommended. There is no referral necessary and appointments are available at short notice.
The Centre can perform a heart scan as early as 13 weeks into the pregnancy. The National Health Service will not test before the 20th week, although they recommend continued monitoring until birth. The London Ultrasound Centre will send the scan report to the patient's midwife or primary doctor if any abnormalities are detected. If the patient does not have a midwife, the Centre's fetal cardiologist can provide addition care. Expectant mothers will receive their results in the form of a two page report within 48 hours.
This is an idea of the many fantastic services, scans and medical checks the London Ultrasound Centre provides expectant mothers.
