South Metro OB/GYN provides board certified Ultrasonographers on site so that your ultrasound can be performed in conjunction with your doctor's appointment. Our Ultrasonographers are highly trained in obstetrical ultrasounds as well as ultrasounds done to identify gynecologic abnormalities such as ovarian cysts and uterine fibroids. Routine obstetrical ultrasounds are performed at eight weeks, twelve weeks and twenty weeks. Additional ultrasounds may be necessary at your physician's discretion.
Gynecologic ultrasounds can usually be done on the same day as your appointment with the doctor before or after a gynecologic abnormality has been suspected or identified. We pride ourselves in offering you the most comprehensive care possible so that you leave our office with the confidence that you have been well cared for.
Obstetic ultrasound is a diagnostic test that allows parents to view their baby, and to even determine the baby’s sex. During pregnancy, a woman may visit their doctor for multiple ultrasounds in order to ensure the baby’s health, as well as the sex of the baby. To view the baby, doctors may use both 3D and 4D ultrasounds, but they are not standard prenatal tests.
Ultrasounds in 3D and 4D
Just like regular ultrasounds, 3D and 4D ultrasounds use sound waves to create an image of your baby in your womb. With 3D ultrasounds, you will be able to see a three-dimensional image of your baby. On the other hand, 4D ultrasounds create a live video effect that allows you to watch your baby smile or yawn.
Some of the conditions and types of ultrasounds that our Ultrasonographers are trained to address include:
- Pregnancy Confirmation
- 1st Trimester Screening
- Anatomy and Growth
- Biophysical Profiles
- Pre-Term Labor/Cervix Check/Placenta check 3D and 4D
