Cervical Length Scan
The cervix length is the measurement of the closed part of the Cervix during pregnancy and can be assessed from 14-16 weeks onward.
This measurement is clinically useful in the prediction of pre-term birth (PTB).
The aim is to determine if the cervix is long enough to hold the pregnancy and to establish the risk of early labor or of late miscarriage.
Cervix length should be measured every two weeks between 14-24 weeks of gestation in women with a history of PTB and 20-24 weeks in women with no history of PTB.
