Miscarriage within the first 3 months of prgenancy is sadly something that affects at least 1 in 5 women.
In cases of 3 or more consecutive miscarriages, this is regarded as recurrent miscarriage.
Advanced 2D and 3D transvaginal scanning (TVS) can highlight many anatomical and gynaecological issues which can cause early miscarriage. In addition, modern colour Doppler (blood flow) ultrasound can identify hormonal (progesterone) activity of the ovaries which is crucial to normal implantation and growth of pregnancy. Poor progesterone levels in early pregnancy can increase the risk of miscarriage.
CDS offers very advanced imaging technology and scanning expertise, and Bill Smith, Head of CDS, is recognised internationally for his work in this area.
