The scans will be carried out at the Antenatal Ultrasound Clinic, Fetal Medicine Unit, Fetal Cardiology Service, Fetal MRI or Clinical Research Facility at St. Thomas’ Hospital (links in the useful links section). As well as having all the expert specialist sonographers (for ultrasound scans) and radiographers (for MRI scans) in these units, we also have doctors who specialise in performing these scans in pregnant women. In addition, we will be recruiting a Research Midwife to help look after our participants.


Participant Information Team

Our team will be based in the waiting area of the Women’s Ultrasound Department, ready to answer any questions you may have about the study.
