Pregnancy Imaging

Throughout your pregnancy, you may be referred for a number of scans. Most obstetricians and doctors will recommend that a nuchal translucency scan be performed between 12 and 13 weeks and a morphology scan performed between 18-20 weeks. Using the latest imaging technology, Queensland X-Ray provides all the necessary scans during your pregnancy. The nuchal translucency scan is only offered at certain accredited sites, as it is a more specialised scan.

At Queensland X-Ray, we are committed to providing comprehensive and compassionate care throughout your pregnancy journey.

Pregnancy Ultrasound FAQs

  • Queensland X-Ray offers a comprehensive range of pregnancy imaging services. These include nuchal translucency scans, which is the obstetric imaging performed between 12 and 13 weeks of pregnancy to assess the likelihood of pre-eclampsia or structural or chromosomal abnormalities. Morphology scans, which are performed between 20-22 weeks to examine the baby’s structure and organs, and third-trimester ultrasounds, which are used to monitor the baby’s growth and wellbeing beyond the 27-week mark.

  • The cost of ultrasound procedures at Queensland X-Ray can vary depending on the specific service and other factors. The staff at Queensland X-Ray will provide you with a detailed breakdown of the costs associated with your service.

  • Morphology scans occur at the 20-22 week stage of your pregnancy to assess the development of your unborn baby. It is at this stage that the baby’s organs have formed, and we are usually able to view them clearly on the ultrasound. It’s also during this stage that our experienced sonographers will try to identify the baby’s gender. During the ultrasound scan, the sonographer will ask the expecting parents if they would like to know the gender of the baby. This can also be written down on one of our special cards if a gender reveal party is planned. In some instances, however, the baby may be in the wrong position and they will be unable to confirm.

  • You are unable to take photos or videos during your scan. Queensland X-Ray provides patients with all of their images via our Patient Portal. Shortly after your first visit to Queensland X-Ray, you will receive a text message about accessing your results through our Patient Portal. This secure portal allows you to view and download your medical images and results at any time. It is compatible with most internet browsers and mobile devices, ensuring accessibility from anywhere in Australia.

  • At most of our specialised women’s imaging practices a 3D/4D imaging of your baby will be performed if possible and if the baby is in the correct position. Please check at the time of booking your appointment if you require this.

  • Whilst we understand it is an exciting time, we limit attendance in the room to one support person due to the precise anatomical assessment required. Whilst it is preferred that small children do not attend these appointments, we understand at times this may be unavoidable and request that they are appropriately supervised.
