I saw Prof Davor Jurkovic for an extensive internal ultrasound, I felt very comfortable in the clinic and Prof Jurkovic was able to tell me things that no other doctor had. He made me feel extremely comfortable and in control, I would absolutely recommend him to any women looking into internal ultrasounds for endometriosis. Really great experience 🙂

In all these years I have been living in London, one of the best appointments so far. Mr Dimtri Mavrelos, walked me through every tiny element of the test. Answered every question with utmost clarity. It’s amazing how someone simplifying medical terms can ease one person. I highly recommend to utilise the services here. Big thumbs up to Mr Dimtri Mavrelos.

My wife Athina Fox and I attended the UCH on Friday 12th January 2024 for her ultrasound. Professor Davor Jurkovic and his team were amazing. He made us feel at ease and explained everything to us whilst he was carrying out the ultrasound. With my wife's permission he even let me and my wife look at the screen of the ultrasound and explained what we were looking at in great detail which made us both feel more relaxed as when you read letters of results the medical terminologies are not always clear.

I had an appointment today for an ultrasound with Mr Naftalin as part of my consultation with Peter Barton-Smith for my ongoing endometriosis care. Mr Naftalin was not only exceedingly professional but made me feel very informed and completely at ease. I was finally able to get answers that would have taken months on the NHS. I flew from Belfast to London for this consultation. I have previously attended the clinic for an appointment with Prof Jurkovic and can confirm that all the staff are so welcoming. Mr Naftalin's assistant, Ms Purauskyte was also very helpful and attentive. The cost of the scan is an investment in your health, and as this is one of the top teams in the U.K., I would not hesitate to recommend them not just for other women with endometriosis, but for all those who wish to have expert gynae care.

Dr Yazbeck and the team are absolutely the best. From when you enter through the door to the end of your appointment you feel a sense of security and attention. I've been seeing Dr Yazbeck for over 4 years now and he has been outstanding, his patient bedside manners are outstanding, he is professional, knowledgeable and always very attentive and reassuring. I recommend him and the team 100%.

Absolutely amazing. Was called into my appointment on time and the consultant was brilliant (she also has amazing fashion sense by the way): we talked through my symptoms and then she explained each and every step of my ultrasound and what everything was. I left feeling relieved and also well informed - like someone really listened and did a thorough check. Felt really well looked after and will definitely book my follow up in a year at the same place.

From the minute you walk into the GUC, you are met with professionalism, politeness and a feeling of calm. Which is exactly what you need when going for a medical appointment/procedure.The centre is lovely, clean and inviting and I was seen promptly.My doctor was Miss Naaila Aslam and I cannot rate her highly enough. I suffer from severe anxiety and she completely put me at ease and explained everything in a completely comprehensive and personable manner throughout my ultrasound. I didn't feel rushed at all and came out of my appointment feeling heard, understood and reassured, which is very unusual for me! Thank you Miss Aslam and the staff at the GUC.

Have questions?
Is it possible to diagnose ectopic pregnancy on the scan?
Experienced operators are able to detect almost all ectopic pregnancies measuring more than a few millimetres in size on ultrasound scan. It is important to emphasize; however, that ectopic pregnancies tend to develop more slowly than intrauterine pregnancies and it often takes them longer to grow to the size which makes them visible on the scan. Most women with a positive pregnancy test in whom ultrasound cannot identify a pregnancy have either normal pregnancies which are younger than expected from the date of their last period or they have already suffered a miscarriage. A small proportion of these women; however, may develop small ectopic pregnancies. A blood test is usually arranged in these cases to measure the levels of pregnancy hormones in women’s blood. Based on the result of the blood test we can advise women on the likely outcome of their pregnancy and on the need for further follow up.

Based on the result of the blood test we can advise women on the likely outcome of their pregnancy and on the need for further follow up.
When can you see the baby’s heartbeat?
The earliest ultrasound can confirm the presence of a heartbeat is two weeks after a missed menstrual period or four weeks after conception. In women who conceive after IVF the heartbeat can be seen four weeks after the day of oocyte collection. Again, in order to avoid coming for the scan too early it is best to delay the attendance until two and a half to three weeks after the missed period or four and a half to five weeks after conception/oocyte collection.

How soon after a missed period can pregnancy be seen on the scan?
A normal intrauterine pregnancy can be first seen on the scan three days after a missed menstrual period. In women who fall pregnant after fertility treatment such as ovarian stimulation the pregnancy can be seen 17 days after ovulation. In women who conceive after IVF the pregnancy can be seen 17 days after the day of oocyte collection. There are, however, small variations in the timing of conception and women who wish to confirm that their pregnancy is located within the uterus are advised to delay their attendance until a week after the missed period (or three weeks after conception) to avoid coming for the scan too early. This is particularly important in women with uterine abnormalities such as fibroids or adenomyosis, which make it harder to see the pregnancy and sometimes the diagnosis may be delayed for several days.

Is it safe to have a scan in early pregnancy?
There is no evidence that ultrasound scans can harm pregnancies. It is important to ensure, however, that the energy of ultrasound beam is kept low. Use of pulsed Doppler devices to measure blood flow should be avoided in the first weeks of pregnancy as their energy output is higher compared to the ultrasound beam used for standard imaging. Our equipment is fully compliant with the international standards for safe use in pregnancy and the machine energy output is continuously monitored during the examination.

Is it possible to detect ovarian cancer on the scan?
Ovarian cancer can be accurately diagnosed on ultrasound scan. The best and most accurate way to diagnose ovarian cancer is by an expert performing a systematic and detailed examination of the tumour and the adjacent structures in the pelvis and abdominal cavity. The advantage of this approach is that it provides the information about the nature of the tumour instantly in the vast majority of cases, without the need of additional blood tests such as CA125 or MRI.

Can you see Fallopian tubes on the scan?
Normal Fallopian tubes are very thin and they cannot be routinely seen on the scan. If the tubes are damaged, they tend to fill with fluid which makes it possible to see them. Tubal patency can be tested using a procedure called HyCoSy which is described in the section on the services we offer to women with concerns about their fertility.
