CRL Measurement, Dating of Pregnancy, Visual Heartbeat & Movement, Ectopic Pregnancy Assessment & Yolk Sac Evaluation
Your scan will be conducted using an abdominal ultrasound probe (external on the abdomen), and it is important to recognise that imagery obtained is derived from the reflection of sound waves passing through your abdomen creating the visual image. From 6 weeks gestation your baby is likely to measure approximately 5mm in length, as such the level of diagnostic evaluation and visibility achievable should you attend this type of scan as early as 6 weeks can differ greatly between clients, especially in cases of a high BMI which can result in poor image resolution possibly leading to an inconclusive evaluation. In recognition of this it is preferred to perform this scan from a minimum 8 weeks gestation as it is important to understand that between 6 & 7 weeks, not all elements of this assessment may be achievable, therefore we have indicted in the *Gestation Age Evaluation Criteria the level of diagnostic evaluation that should be achievable within the defined periods. If your pregnancy is less than 6 weeks we cannot guarantee achievement of any of the defined criteria.
The earlyAssure™ is a scan tailored for the early stages of pregnancy to determine viability, ectopic exclusion, identification of single or multiple foetus, growth measurement, dating of pregnancy and visualisation of heartbeat and movement.
