Why would I need an ultrasound?

Ultrasounds are beneficial for diagnostic purposes, as well as for monitoring your pregnancy. Your OB/GYN might order an ultrasound to:

  • Check for ovarian cysts
  • Diagnose fibroids or abnormal growths
  • Monitor your baby’s development
  • Evaluate your reproductive organs

You can also request a gender reveal ultrasound scan after 15 weeks. That allows you to include your loved ones while finding out your baby’s gender.

Are there different types of ultrasounds?

Yes. For diagnostic purposes, you might need a traditional 2D ultrasound that scans your reproductive organs with an external handheld device. It’s also common to require transvaginal ultrasounds, which involves getting a closer look at your organs by inserting a thin scanning probe into your vagina.

While your doctor may use these ultrasounds during pregnancy to evaluate your baby’s development, there are also more advanced ultrasound systems for this purpose.

For instance, you might prefer a more detailed high-definition 4D ultrasound scan. This state-of-the-art imaging option allows you to see clear images of your baby and watch their movements.

Can I get pictures of my ultrasound?

The team at OB/GYN LTD. offers several packages so that you can have a keepsake of your growing baby. With the 2D value package, you can find out your baby’s gender, listen to their heartbeat, and go home with keepsake black and white images as early as 15 weeks.

The 4D value package also allows you to get clear 4D images of your growing baby at 34 weeks. You can always upgrade to premium 2D or 4D packages, which include a DVD of your ultrasound.

With premium packages, you even get a stuffed animal that includes your baby’s heartbeat.

What should I expect during my ultrasound?

Ultrasound imaging scans are completely painless, although if you’re pregnant or have an abnormal growth, they can be uncomfortable. Depending on why you receive the scan, you might need to have a full bladder. That helps push up your reproductive organs so your technician can gather clear images.

OB/GYN LTD. is one of the only clinics in the area to have a high-risk ultrasound technician on site. So if you have a high-risk pregnancy, you can feel confident your doctor can efficiently monitor your baby’s development through advanced, specialized imaging.

The team at OB/GYN LTD. specializes in modern ultrasound imaging scans. Schedule your appointment by calling the office or by using the online booking feature.
