In most circumstances, your ultrasound is a wonderful family event. Please keep in mind that this is also a medical test which must be as accurate as possible and which requires concentration. A specially trained person known as a registered diagnostic medical sonographer (RDMS) will perform the examination which will be reviewed by a physician trained in fetal imaging.
Expectations For Your Visit
Depending on your needs, you will meet with our sonographer.
Appointments usually take 40 minutes or less per baby, depending upon the fetal position(s).
A detailed report will be sent to your prenatal care provider within 48 hours.
To help ensure a successful exam:
Wear a two-piece outfit
Empty your bladder 60 minutes before the exam.
After emptying your bladder, consume two 8oz. glasses of fluid (water, soda, milk, etc.)
