Safety Of Private Ultasounds
From the start everyone from your practitioner to your midwife and all your maternity care providers want what's best for yourself and your baby.
It is widely believed that scanning is not harmful. That being said a wide range of experts and organisations fully involved in scanning and even promoting scanning have accepted that there are unanswered questions about the safety of scanning for non-medical purposes.
At Bubbaview we take this very seriously as your baby's safety is always top of the list in any circumstances. We follow the BMUS (British Medical Ultrasound Society) as well as all the main Ultrasound organizations policy's to limit exposure to an absolute minimum to the cryteria of the scan. We set our equipment to the lowest setting possible while still being able to produce quality images of your baby.
We impose a maximum amount of time that we scan any one individual and always aim to complete scanning in 30 minutes or less depending on circumstances. In some instances we will scan for up to 45 minutes which is the recommended time frame for scanning from the ALARA. (As Long As Reasonably Achievable)
The Scanners at Bubbaview are fully trained and adhere that safety is always the main priority. When you come to Bubbaview you can guarantee that you are in the safest possible hands in the knowledge that all rules, regulations and general safety advice is fully adhered to including the ALARA (As long as reasonably achievable) principle to limit exposure and the RCOG (Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology) guidelines for private obstetric scans, we ensure all of these guidelines as standard with every single scan we perform.
