The Early Growth Scan is different from the Early Gender Scan (Mr Penman offers this at the time of the Nuchal Scan).
The Early Growth Scan is performed between 14 and 19 weeks has several benefits for your baby.
- *Allows the doctor to check your baby is growing in line with previous scans.
- *Allows the doctor to check basic structure and anatomy – but not in as much detail as formal anomaly scan.
- *Allows assessment of the fetal gender. At 16 weeks the external genitalia is fully formed and accuracy rate of 99.9% can be achieved. See Baby Gender Scan Overview for more information.
