What is an Anomaly or Anatomy scan?
Sometimes referred to as mid-pregnancy scan, 20 week anatomy scan or anomaly scan is primarily concerned with checking for normal development of your baby’s physical features and internal organs. At this stage all of the baby’s organs are developed and clearly visible. Anatomy scan is a very detailed examination where special attention is given to certain organs or features in order to detect any anomalies.
We will also examine the mother’s uterus (womb) and placental position.
