HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR ELECTIVE ULTRASOUND

TRANSVAGINAL ULTRASOUND 

  • Many women get a trans vaginal ultrasound in their first trimester. At this stage of your pregnancy, they're more accurate than abdominal ultrasounds. 

  • We will ask you to sign a consent form allowing us to preform this exam, If you are uncomfortable in any way, you can decline any time during the exam and we will perform an abdominal scan. 

  • Ultrasounds use sound waves to create images of your baby in the womb. With a transvaginal ultrasound, a technician inserts a small probe into your vagina to get a clearer image of your tiny baby.

  • Transvaginal ultrasounds check your baby's heartbeat and the placenta.

  • Please have an empty bladder for this type of exam

TRANSABDOMINAL ULTRASOUND 

  • A 2-3 trimester ultrasound is just like a regular abdominal ultrasound. You'll lie down and a technician will put a special gel on your belly. This will help carry the sound waves. Then the technician will hold a probe against your belly and move it around to get an image. You may need to go into the exam with a full bladder. This will make the test results more clear.

  • 3D imaging adds another dimension to the ultrasound image, creating three-dimensional interpretations rather than the flat two-dimensional images that are made with traditional ultrasound.

  • 4D Ultrasounds show 3D images in motion

  • Stay well hydrated during this exam to insure better image quality. 

  • Please have a full bladder for this type of exam.
