A moderately full bladder can help us see your baby and pelvis better. Please empty your bladder an hour before your scan and drink two glasses (250mL) of fluid, then do not empty your bladder again before your scan. You do not need to do this for a third trimester growth scan.
Depending on the type of scan it may take between 30 and 60 minutes. Please allow up to 90 minutes for your appointment however, as this enables the sonographers to complete a detailed scan and Dr Olog to scan and consult you on the day. Baby’s position can be a large factor on the length of the scan. Some baby’s may hide during the scan and to ensure we complete the study with a thorough assessment, it may take time to get your baby in to different positions.
Unfortunately obstetrics is unpredictable and there are times when a problem may be identified. These cases may require longer counselling with Dr Olog and further invasive testing on the day may be performed. This situation may extend over a couple of hours depending on the complexity and the patient needs. This process may affect the delay in appointments for other women.
We apologise for these delays and unfortunately we can not always predict these situations. Please phone in advance if you are concerned about wait times and we can give an estimate of any delay, to allow you to plan your day and any parking arrangements.
