What is an ultrasound?
An ultrasound exam works by using a device to send sound waves through your body, as these sound waves bounce back to the device it creates an image that can be viewed on a display monitor. Ultrasound exams performed by our clinic are painless and non-invasive.
Our clinic performs obstetrical ultrasounds that are completely painless.
How does an ultrasound help?
An ultrasound scan will provide our trained technician with images that provide important details about your pregnancy that include:
Location and viability of pregnancy: A normal and healthy pregnancy is known as a uterine pregnancy, this is because the fertilized egg is attached to the wall of your uterus. While the vast majority of pregnancies are uterine pregnancies there are instances of a fertilized egg implanting in the fallopian tubes. This is known as an ectopic pregnancy and requires immediate medical intervention as it can cause serious and life threatening complications to you. An ultrasound will determine the location of your pregnancy and if further medical intervention is required.
Gestation age: An ultrasound scan by our trained technician can help determine the size and development of your pregnancy. This information is used to determine how far along your pregnancy is and will help determine what options are available to you.
