Pricing and Information

Life Scan Studio uses 2D, 3D / 4D & 5D / HD Ultrasound technology that allows you and your family to experience the sights, sounds, and movements of your baby as he or she kicks, smiles, turns or yawns. This experience is dedicated solely for the purpose of promoting bonding between you, your family and your baby. This is an incredible opportunity to see your baby in real life 2D, 3D, 4D and 5D / HD images with keepsake photos and videos we guarantee you will cherish for a lifetime!

At Life Scan Studio, we recognize that many medical institutions may not offer 3D, 4D and 5D / HD ultrasound technology, or have the time in their diagnostic schedules to do what we can in an elective session. Our services should not be used to replace regular prenatal care provided by a physician.  During each ultrasound we do a general abnormalities check and should we detect anything that does not appear normal we will point it out during the session.

Should the baby not participate during the ultrasound we offer a rescan at R350.00. This is done weekdays only. Bringing a chocolate or a cold drink with for your ultrasound appointment helps should the baby be sleeping or is in a position where we struggle to see the face or the gender. Please bring a NEW USB with for us to save your images and videos of the ultrasound, alternatively we have USB's or DVD's available at an additional charge.

NT Screening
R550

Combined first-trimester screening is not a diagnostic test, which means it cannot tell you whether your baby has Down syndrome, trisomy 13 or trisomy 18. Instead, the screening provides a probability that the baby might have Down syndrome, trisomy 13 or trisomy 18. The screening results can either alert you and your doctor that your baby is at an increased risk for one of these chromosomal disorders or be reassuring that your baby is at a lower risk for these conditions. This is performed during 11 - 14 weeks of gestation.

Pre Delivery Ultrasound
