  • A survey of social and commercial aspects linked to the two NHS fetal anomaly screening scans: an on-line survey

    Responsible officer: Nigel Thomson Date published: 8 December, 2015 Topics: Ultrasound

    This document is available free for members only.

    Please login if you are a member.

    Summary

    SCoR publishes this survey of social and commercial aspects linked to the two NHS fetal anomaly screening scans. These are aspects that are not clinically related but are important for the mother and her family. They include having her partner or other adults and children accompany her, the possibility of being given an opinion of the fetal sex and obtaining images and photographs to take home. These aspects do not form part of national screening programme requirements which are solely concerned with clinical evaluation by ultrasound.

    Summary
