  • Pregnant women are followed- up throughout the pregnancy by the same person, since all ultrasound scans are performed by us, ensuring a holistic approach since we will have a comprehensive picture of the pregnancy.
  • All cases are managed according to the latest protocols by the (Royal & American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists (RCOG and ACOG, respectively) after adaptation to the Greek standards and with extensive counseling.
  • Appointments are scheduled in advance with the minimum waiting time.
  • The time devoted to each woman is at least 30 minutes for the nuchal translucency scan and at least 45 minutes for the anomaly scan, so a detailed examination is performed and all questions are answered.
  • Each examination is accompanied by a detailed report explaining all details and aspects of the scan. Moreover, all future mothers receive photos and a DVD that includes all the exam, free of charge.
  • We are associates of IASO Thessaly and Maternity Clinic of Trikala, so we can cover all women’s individual preferences and needs.
