First Trimester Pre-Eclampsia Screening

This is a non-invasive screening test performed during the first trimester to assess the risk of developing Pre-eclampsia.

  • Pre-eclampsia, a serious pregnancy complication, affects 2 in 100 pregnancies.
  • Our screening includes a specific blood test for PlGF, blood pressure measurement, and ultrasound examination.
  • Early detection and treatment can help prevent pre-eclampsia.

Check out this e-brochure here for more information.

One-stop Clinic for Assessment of Risk for Fetal Anomalies (OSCAR)

This examination includes a screening scan for early assessment of fetal anatomy (organ development) and the evaluation of specific ultrasound markers, including Nuchal Translucency (NT) and nasal bone.

  • Offered in the first trimester to screen for fetal anomalies, particularly Down Syndrome (Trisomy 21).
  • Provides earlier reassurance for those with a normal result.
  • Helps in deciding whether invasive testing (such as CVS or Amniocentesis) is necessary.

For detailed information on OSCAR, please download our e-brochure.

  • Screens for structural deformities in the brain, heart, spine, and more.
  • Gender determination available upon request.
  • Evaluates the location of the placenta and amniotic fluid levels.

3D/4D Ultrasound Scans

Experience the joy of seeing your unborn child through 3D/4D ultrasound scans. A 3D ultrasound scan provides a photographic image of the baby while the 4D ultrasound scan provides a moving image of the baby.

  • Performed by experienced sonographers in a relaxed environment.
  • A 2D scan is also included to assess growth and exclude anomalies.
  • A referral letter from your doctor is required for appointment booking
