Mr Economides is the founder of Myscan, a service that offers private pregnancy scanning performed by expert and highly experienced staff, using the latest ultrasound technology, including 3D and 4D scanning. Myscan is available at four convenient locations in London: The Royal Free Hospital, The Portland Hospital, The Hospital of Saint John and Saint Elisabeth, and The Birth Company at 137 Harley Street.
MyScan offers the full range of pregnancy and fetal screening scans, including:
Mr Economides is one of the country's leading experts on the use of 3D and 4D ultrasound scanning in pregnancy, and conducts all such scans performed at Myscan personally. Although not a replacement for the series of 2D antenatal ultrasound scans, 3D and 4D scanning produces a lifelike image of the fetus where some parts of the body, for example the face, can be clearly seen and detailed movements can be observed. These scans are usually performed between 25 and 32 weeks and cost £100. Mr Economides makes a full check of the baby and provides a detailed scan report. Many people also enjoy 'meeting' their baby for the first time this way, and a DVD recording and colour photographs are also provided as part of the service.
In addition to his experience and expertise in obstetric ultrasound, Mr Economides has a special interest in the care of women who have experienced recurrent miscarriages. He offers a variety of options for care after miscarriage, including medication and surgery, as well as advice on the emotions of those involved. He advises women to contact him if they fall pregnant again after a miscarriage and are concerned. He can provide advice and support in the early stages of pregnancy and can also arrange an early scan for peace of mind.
Mr Economides is actively involved in the training of obstetricians and gynaecologists at all levels and runs ultrasound workshops in both fields. He has published widely on his areas of interest and his current research interests include 3D ultrasound, miscarriage, fetal wellbeing and inherited blood disorders in women.
