You can have all your (medical) scans during pregnancy at Echo Amsterdam. Our qualified and experienced ultrasound technicians will take the time to make good images of your baby and show and explain everything to you along the way. We project these images on the wall with a beamer so that you can see them comfortably and clearly. By regular schooling and case-studies, using high quality ultrasound equipment, having our own quality-manager and working closely with our ‘regional centre for prenatal screening’ we are constantly maintaining the quality of our ultrasound scans.
Echo Amsterdam is open 7 days a week, on the weekend and on Monday-, Wednesday- and Thursday-evening.
If you want extra ultrasounds ‘for fun’ you are welcome to make an appointment at any time during your pregnancy. Your insurance will not cover these extra scans and you do not need a referral for them.
