6–11 Weeks: This baby scan is performed to establish the presence of a single or multiple intrauterine pregnancy. We look at the heartbeat and measure the embryo to determine the age. This early measurement is very accurate for dating. Anatomical details are limited at this stage.
12–19 Weeks: This baby scan is performed to estimate the age of the pregnancy (if not already established) and assess the health of your baby. We look for the presence or absence of any physical abnormalities, measure the age of the fetus and determine whether it is a single or multiple pregnancy. Depending on how far along the pregnancy has progressed dictates how much of the anatomy can be assessed and what measurements are taken.
We use the first day of your last menstrual period to determine the gestational age. We compare that with specific measurements of the embryo by measuring the distance from the top of the head (crown) to the bottom of the body (rump). We may also include measurements of the gestational sac and of the heartbeat. These measurements are very accurate and can determine the expected age even if you are unsure of your last menstrual period.
