Q: Can I bring someone along for the scan appointment?
Q: Can I empty my bladder before the scan?
Q: What happens if a problem is detected on scan?
A: If at the time of a scan a problem is suspected, you will be advised at that stage that there may be a problem. A full discussion of the problem may require you to come back for a further scan and discussion with a fetal medicine specialist. This can usually be organised within 24 hours if the problem is deemed urgent.
Most problems that need repeat scanning are not serious and approximately 15% of scans will need to be repeated for one reason or another. Follow-on medical care can be arranged at the National Maternity Hospital if you so wish.
