Pregnant women will have two prenatal screening ultrasound examinations: early pregnancy ultrasound and a structural ultrasound scan. Every pregnant woman is entitled to two ultrasound examinations free of charge. The examinations are related to fetal screening. The first ultrasound is performed during gestational weeks 11+0 to 13+6, and the second is performed during gestational weeks 19 to 21.  The ultrasound screenings are performed by a specially trained midwife.

An invitation letter to the first term ultrasound scan will be sent based on the background information received from the maternity health clinic. In regards to screening for chromosomal abnormalities, nuchal fold thickness measurement and a blood sample can be combined to the early pregnancy ultrasound scan. The early pregnancy ultrasound will be performed during gestational weeks 10 to 13, and the structural ultrasound scan is performed during gestational weeks 19 to 21. Screening examinations are voluntary.

The ultrasound scan appointment lasts 30 minutes. Please register for the screening examination appointment with the self-registration kiosk in the entrance lobby.
In some of the risk pregnancies the ultrasound screening examination is made by a specialist physician. In this case the appointment is subject to a fee.
