Toronto Centre for Early Fetal Ultrasound

We perform early-stage, fetal-targeted ultrasound examinations in order to detect potential fetal conditions such as structural anomalies – which are complications that may occur with the development of the fetalskull, brain, spine, abdominal wall, limbs, stomach and bladder – and to detect chromosomal disorders, such as Down's syndrome.

In Canada, the first targeted ultrasound for detection of anomalies is traditionally performed at 18-20 weeks. This centre, however, performs these targeted ultrasounds six to eight weeks earlier, at 12-15 weeks.

Sunnybrook is the first professionally accredited facility to offer this service to women in Canada. We offer amniocentesis, CVS and other procedures as well as fetal echocardiography services.
