Pregnancy Investigations


Dating Scan


The dating scan is performed to assess the number of embryos present and the fetal gestation age between 10 to 16 weeks gestation. It may be conducted transvaginally or with an abdominal scan (ultrasound).

Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing

Known as an NIPT investigation, this test is offered as an investigation for Down’s syndrome and will determine, with high accuracy, either a ‘low risk’ or ‘high risk’ diagnosis. This test does not involve any invasive procedures, just a simple maternal blood test:

•   Performed from 10 weeks of pregnancy.

A NIPT test will screen for Chromosomes 13,18,21, X and Y. You will be offered genetic counseling if the results of this test are positive or ‘ high risk’.
