Ultrasounds must be scheduled by phone and cannot be scheduled online. Our ultrasounds are limited obstetric ultrasounds and are used to determine if the baby is in the uterus where it is supposed to be, gestational age (how far along you are), as well as to detect a heartbeat. We are unable to provide gender assessment.
Our medical services are not intended to be a substitute for licensed professional counseling, or for either routine or emergency medical or prenatal care. Individuals who believe they are experiencing a medical emergency should call 911 and seek care from the nearest emergency room.
Ultrasound is a noninvasive imaging test that uses high-frequency sound waves to create pictures of organs, tissues, and other structures inside your body. It is a painless and very safe procedure performed by a trained technician called a sonographer. During the procedure, you will lie on a table and the sonographer will apply a warm gel to your skin. The gel helps the sound waves travel through your skin and body.
The sonographer will run a handheld device called a transducer over the gel. The transducer sends sound waves into your body and receives echoes back that are converted into images on a computer screen. You may be asked to hold your breath or change positions in order to get better images. The procedure usually takes no more than 30 minutes.
* If you need to cancel or reschedule your ultrasound, please provide at least 24 hours notice.
