Chorion Villus Sampling and Amniocentesis

CVS (chorion villus sampling) and Amniocentesis are both diagnostic tests for chromosomal abnormalities of the unborn child. Both tests are equally accurate in the diagnosis of chromosomal abnormalities.

Ultrasound detection of Down syndrome at 12 weeks of Pregnancy

Why have tests for Down syndrome?

1. Down syndrome is a congenital chromosome abnormality also called Trisomy 21. This means there is an extra chromosome 21 in every cell of the body.

2. Children with Down syndrome always have an intellectual and a physical disability.

All pregnant women of any age have a small risk of delivering a baby with Down syndrome. As women age, the risk of delivering a baby with Down syndrome increases.

Ultrasound in Pregnancy

Ultrasound examinations use sound waves that are of a higher frequency than those we can hear. These sound waves are reflected from tissue that they pass through, and are changed into an image on a TV screen by a sophisticated computer. The examination, which may sometimes be called a “scan”, allows the doctor performing the scan to examine many tissues and organs of the body, and to see normal and abnormal anatomy. It is particularly suitable for the examination of pregnancies, and especially fetal anatomy.

Ultrasound Test of Tubal Patency

The reproductive organs in a female consist of the vagina, cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes and the ovaries (see above diagram). The ovary produces the eggs which are fertilized in the fallopian tubes. The embryo then travels along the fallopian tube in the first few days of life and eventually attaches itself in the cavity of the uterus, growing into a full term baby. One of the common causes of infertility (inability to fall pregnant) is a blockage of the fallopian tubes. The fallopian tubes are about 15cm long and arise from the upper uterus on both sides. The other end of the tubes has a wide opening which lies over the ovary to pick up the egg at the time of ovulation. The patency (openness) of the fallopian tubes can be confirmed by performing a tubal patency test with an ultrasound contrast medium called Levovist

Pelvic ultrasound in gynaecology

Ultrasound examinations use sound waves that are of a higher frequency than human hearing. The sound waves are reflected from tissue that they pass through, and are changed into an image on a TV screen by a sophisticated computer. The examination, which may sometimes be called a “scan”, allows the doctor performing the scan to examine many tissues and organs of the body, and to see normal and abnormal anatomy. If is particularly suitable for the examination of the female pelvis.


Ultrasound for assessment of deep endometriosis with bowel preparation

Endometriosis is a common gynaecological condition defined as presence of endometrial like tissue outside the uterus which impairs quality of life. In more severe disease, there may be ovarian cysts and deep infiltration of the pelvic organs. Deep endometriosis may involve the bowel, most commonly rectosigmoid colon.

 

Harmony Prenatal Test

The Harmony Prenatal Test is a maternal blood test performed from 10 weeks gestation onwards.  The test detects >99% of fetal trisomy 21 cases at a false positive rate of <0.01%.  The test provides an individualised risk result for each of the chromosomes tested and the results will be available in 10-14 business days.

3D / 4D Ultrasound

3D / 4D ultrasound is an ultrasound technique used during pregnancy, to
produce lifelike images of the fetus. We offer this to couples who are
interested for entertainment purposes between 26 and 32 weeks of pregnancy.
