A mammogram is an x-ray used to image breast tissue to detect calcifications, cysts, fibroadenoma (non-cancerous breast lumps) and cancer.

Breast tissue is quite dense therefore a mammography unit is designed to increase the quality of the images without increasing the radiation. This is achieved with a paddle that compresses the breast against a platform to produce images at various angles. The images are then produced on film or created digitally and stored on a computer.

Obstetric Ultrasound

Viability and Dating
A Viability and Dating Scan is an initial pregnancy scan performed between 6 and 14 weeks to confirm a viable pregnancy, intrauterine location and estimated delivery date.

A Morphology Scan is a routine examination which most women have in the mid trimester of their pregnancy at 18-20 weeks. Along with measuring the baby the main purpose of the scan is to evaluate the foetal anatomy and where possible to detect foetal anomalies and structural problems.

Third Trimester
A Third Trimester Scan involves an ultrasound of the lower abdomen and is used to assess foetal growth and size, amount of amniotic fluid that is present, blood flow patterns in the cord, brain and liver veins, placental location and overall foetal well-being.

Nuchal Translucency
The Nuchal Translucency Scan can only be performed in the first trimester of pregnancy between 11 weeks 5 days and 13 weeks 6 days. The scan can determine if the foetus is at higher risk of chromosomal anomalies.

3D/4D Obstetric Ultrasound
