Siles Health Logo


Specialist pregnancy and gynaecological ultrasound is available on-site at The Elms every Monday, provided by Siles Health (formerly named Melbourne Women's Imaging). Services that can be performed in Bacchus Marsh include early pregnancy dating scans, Down Syndrome screening as part of the Combined First Trimester ultrasound, second trimester foetal development and morphology scans, third trimester foetal wellbeing and placental position scans, as well as all routine female pelvic and ovarian ultrasounds. 3D/4D ultrasound scanning is available, and for the 12 week and 20 week pregnancy ultrasounds, patients can choose to have a DVD and/or pictures of their scan to keep.

Highly experienced sonographer, Mr Ken Taylor, performs the scan which is then reported by Dr Charles Siles, a consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist who has sub-specialised in sonology. The results are then forwarded to your doctor.

A referral from you doctor is required, and appointments can be made by phoning (03) 9328-4403.
