Non-Invasive Prenatal Genetic Test now available!
We are pleased to announce the arrival of a new service that has been keenly anticipated by both medical staff and pregnant women - the Non-Invasive Prenatal Test.
This ground breaking new method of screening for Down Syndrome (the Harmony Prenatal DNA Test) detects microscopic levels of fetal cells in the mother's blood to produce a 99% accurate detection rate.
Although the new genetic blood test does not replace traditional methods of diagnostic testing via a CVS or amniocentesis it is 100% safe and there is no risk of miscarriage or harm to the unborn baby.

New 4D baby scaning technology ‘HD Live’!
London Ultrasound Centre is proud to announce the arrival of the latest, state-of-the-art high resolution 4D ultrasound machine to it's new Harley Street address.
The GE Voluson E8 Expert complements our existing E8 machine and will soon be installed in our spacious Suite 1.
However this new scanner is equipped with the very latest advancements in ultrasound scanning including SonoAVC follicle tracking software for automated volume counting, and the amazing HD Live 4D scan rendering.
This ingenious piece of technology creates even more realistic images of babies in the womb by combining a new surface rendering technique for smoother skin appearance, with a moveable 'light source' to enable the best 4D baby scan images you will ever see.
The machine will be used for all routine fertility, pregancy and gynaecology scans as well as our award winning Cocoon4D baby scans. The addition of this machine along with our market leading Cocoon4D media packages ensures the London Ultrasound Centre remains at the very cutting edge of ultrasound technology. We believe we are the only commercial 4D baby scanning facility currently using this machine to produce media for parents to take home.
Patients will begin to notice the difference from Monday June 11 when our new GE Voluson E8 Expert machine is rolled into Suite 1 to begin active service.

These precious pregnancies are entrusted to our highly skilled team of experts by the fertility experts directly opposite us on Harley Street.
IVF patients often exhibit higher risk factors than pregnancies that are naturually conceived, and so it is logical that only the very best in prenatal care is extended to the parents as part of their IVF package.
The message here is; if these special pregnancies are exclusively cared for by the London Ultrasopund Centre, shouldn't you be booking your private scans with us?
