Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Pregnancy Presentation Ultrasound Scan?

A Pregnancy Presentation Ultrasound Scan is a diagnostic imaging procedure to determine the fetal position in the womb, crucial for delivery planning.

What should I expect during the scan?

The scan is painless and takes about 15-30 minutes. You may feel slight pressure from the transducer but no significant discomfort.

Is there any preparation required before the scan?

No special preparation is needed. However, you may be asked to have a full bladder to improve image quality.

When will I receive the results of my scan?

Results are typically sent to your healthcare provider, who will discuss them with you at a subsequent appointment.

Can I self-refer for a Pregnancy Presentation Ultrasound Scan?

Yes, you can book a private appointment for a Pregnancy Presentation Ultrasound Scan without a doctor's referral through platforms like Odycy.

Scan Procedure

During a Pregnancy Presentation Ultrasound Scan, a sonographer applies a special gel to your abdomen and moves a handheld device, called a transducer, over the area. The transducer emits sound waves that bounce off structures in your body and are then converted into images on a screen.

Preparation for the Scan

No special preparation is needed for a Pregnancy Presentation Ultrasound Scan. You may be asked to arrive with a full bladder to help improve the quality of the images.

What to Expect on the Day

The scan is painless and typically takes about 15 to 30 minutes. You may feel a slight pressure as the sonographer moves the transducer over your abdomen.

After the Scan

After the scan, you can resume your normal activities. The results will be sent to your healthcare provider, who will discuss them with you at a follow-up appointment.

Alternative Imaging Options

Other imaging options, such as MRI or CT scans, are not typically used in late pregnancy due to potential risks to the fetus. The choice of imaging will depend on your symptoms and the consultant's decision.
