Fergus Scott is an obstetrician and gynaecologist, with sub-specialist qualifications in Maternal Fetal Medicine and Obstetric and Gynaecological Imaging (COGU). Working at Sydney Ultrasound for Women and in the Imaging Department at The Royal Hospital for Women, Prince of Wales Campus, Randwick. This appointment is combined with being an Associate Professor with UNSW.

Main areas of interest include prenatal diagnosis and the changing paradigms within early pregnancy screening, particularly with first trimester ultrasound (nuchal translucency), non-invasive prenatal testing, as well as diagnostic testing using CVS and amniocentesis with SNP-array analysis.

Other professional associations have included:

President Australiasian Society for Ultrasound in Medicine / Board member of the World Federation of Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology

Chair COGU sub-specialty committee, chair of the COGU exam
