Women's Health Institute/Birthing Center/Ultrasound
Obstetrical ultrasound is a medical imaging technique that uses high-frequency sound waves. These sound waves and their echoes produce images of the uterus, fetus, placenta and other surrounding pelvic structures. A licensed ultrasonographer will assist in performing your ultrasound exam. The test is pain-free and has no known harmful effects on your baby or you.
Ultrasound may be used to determine:
- Gestational age and accurately date the pregnancy
- Fetal malformations or abnormalities
- Number of fetuses
- Possible sources of bleeding.
After your appointment with Obstetrics Diagnostic Services, you will receive two bills: one from St. Joseph Medical Center, and one from Perinatal Consultants.
