Point-of-care ultrasound refers to the use of portable ultrasonography at the bedside for diagnostic purposes. It is focused and goal directed. This differs from the more comprehensive ultrasounds performed at the OBGYN office.
Your ultrasound will be performed by a physician or medical sonographer experienced in point-of-care pregnancy ultrasonography.
We will use a portable ultrasonography to perform your abdominal ultrasound. Images can be displayed on a tablet or even your home television.
No - we are performing a very limited ultrasound. We encourage you to follow up with all of your regularly scheduled OB appointments.
YES! We are happy to offer electronic versions of the photos and videos obtained from your session at no additional cost.
Most pregnancies can be visualized transabdominally at approximately 6-7 weeks of gestation. As long as you are far enough along, your baby should be visible.
We will perform a limited ultrasound that will only look at gestational age, heart beat, and gender when applicable. For all other questions related to your pregnancy, you must follow with your OBGYN.
Ultrasonography is an extremely safe procedure that is done routinely to monitor pregnancy and there should be no risk to you or your baby.
The more the merrier. You may allow as many people as you like to view the ultrasound.
We provide ultrasounds 7 days a week. We can also perform emergency visits after hours. To book an appointment, please contact us.
