About us

We are fetal health, obstetrics, gynaecology and private pregnancy care specialists

Our mission

Our mission is to provide a reassuring experience in your pregnancy journey through using our extensive expertise and advanced ultrasound technology.

Our vision is that all parents deserve to know about health of their baby as early as possible and to have the most thorough examinations of the baby’s development during all periods of pregnancy. We have carefully designed a scanning schedule which we believe is optimal for parents reassuring from the earliest possible stage, namely from 7 weeks. We perform very early anomaly scans in combination with NIPT from 10 weeks. Our scans are supported by the latest medical advancements and the personal expertise of our Founder and Medical Director, Dr Fred Ushakov who is an internationally recognised Fetal Ultrasound expert and the founder of the London School of Ultrasound.

Technology

We use the latest model of the GE Voluson E10 ultrasound scanner in its advanced configuration (BT20). On top of this, it is supercharged with the latest visualisation options and 3D/4D technology.

Currently, this is the best commercially available scanner specifically designed for fetal and gynaecological pregnancy scanning.

Doppler

Doppler ultrasound is essential for fetal heart examination and evaluation of the baby’s blood vessels, umbilical cord, placenta, and the womb. Our scanner is equipped with the latest colour technologies and the most recent developments in hardware and software.

We also have extensive expertise in tuning Doppler in order to get the best possible clinical information.

We also use a cloud-based system for your baby’s reports, images, and clips -Tricefy

We use a novel secure digital reporting system, which allows you to see and download the images of your baby from any device that has an internet connection. You can then share these images and reports with your healthcare provider and other members of the family.

Take a Tour of Our Practice

Our Clinic is conveniently located in the City of London. We have invested in all the latest technology, including a 2020 Voluson E10, extra-high-resolution probes, and a Tricefy cloud server where you can view your scan images and reports as soon as you finish your appointment.

Most importantly, we follow a scientific medical approach and do not offer ‘entertainment scans.’ Our primary concern is your baby’s health and as a result we do not offer sexing/keepsake images 3D/4D scans. We are more than happy to provide these free of charge as a part of your scan where possible, after having completed a thorough examination of your baby’s heart, brain, other organs, and its growth and development.

Fred’s dream was always to open a London Ultrasound Centre where he can offer outstanding, professional and caring diagnostic services.
