More women choose to have their baby scans at Horizon Radiology than anywhere else in New Zealand. We have friendly experts in obstetrics and gynaecology who are ready to guide you through the various stages of your pregnancy, from the scan in the first few months that checks your due date and for twins, through to third trimester assessments of growth and well-being.
Pregnancy scans are free for all NZ residents, except for the Nuchal Translucency, Anatomy and Growth scans that include a cost.
Nuchal Translucency is a scan that uses ultrasound to assess your developing baby’s risk of having Down syndrome and some other chromosomal abnormalities, as well as major congenital heart problems. It uses ultrasound to measure the thickness of the fluid build-up at the back of the developing baby’s neck.
All our procedures are painless and safe for both mother and baby.
