Scan Purpose

Magical Views LTD is a provider of private non diagnostic obstetric ultrasound scans. Our aim is to provide families with the pleasure and privilege of seeing your unborn baby. We are exclusively staffed by Sonographers who hold advanced UK qualifications in Obstetric ultrasound. The sonographers are not looking for medical abnormalities, and do not make any diagnoses. We will provide a written wellbeing report. Please be aware that in no circumstances does this constitute a diagnosis of any kind.
You are advised that this scan does not replace any part of your NHS care and you should continue to attend all antenatal appointments.

Ultrasound safety

Ultrasound has been widely used in obstetrics for many decades and there is no evidence of any harm ever being caused by its use. The British Medical Ultrasound society has produced some safe use guidelines which we at magical views will follow. This guidance sets limits on the amount of time we will scan you for. We will also follow the ALARA principle which means that we keep the scan time as short as reasonably achievable to meet the goal of the scan. In this case the goal of the scan is to provide you with a bonding experience. For further information on the safety of Ultrasound please view the following government advice. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/ultrasound-what-it-is-how-it-works-and-the-impact-of-exposure/ultrasound-what-it-is-how-it-works-and-impact-of-exposure


You may also ask your sonographer who is fully trained in the safety of ultrasound and can answer your questions for you on this matter.
