    at the tsan yuk clinic they had a little sign that you had to tell them BEFORE you went in and that it was $60 (but that was years ago).

    I think it's more expensive to get the pics now... or maybe it's $60 per pic? I can't remember... I was at tsan yuk too... but in '08 they did have signs (or maybe it was on the million sheets of paper that they love giving you) that you can buy them...

    Is it free? Damn, and I just had it (the OSCAR test) 2 weeks ago in a private clinic so I would not have to bear with the waiting.... Well, I hope it will be covered by my insurance!

    About cost, I am going to the antenatal at TKO Hospital. It is free unless they do scan on you. So far I had 2 appointment. First on week 7 with the midwife. Second with a doctor on week 10, and will have my next one on next week at week 15.

    i gave birth last year and got free ultrasound scans done in QMH, referred by tsan yuk clinic. since i wanted dvd and photos too, i contacted lady helen woo women's diagnostic & treatment centre (http://www.hku.hk/obsgyn/clinicalServ/lhww/main.htm). their charges are mentioned on the website. they are nice over the phone and also in clinic so just call them up for an appointment/enquiry. the doc does the scan and gives you a dvd (with mini-clips and photos) after making the payment. hardcopies of the photos follow by post.

    aava, please don't type in blue.... it's very difficult to read.

    gataloca, the local gov't system is VERY VERY cheap. for two troublesome pregnancies, i was hospitalised 13 times. spent about 2-3 months in hospital total, had scans at EVERY appointment, and extra appointments just for scans...

    i paid less than $4000 TOTAL (two pregnancies... not each)
