Prenatal Ultrasound

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

A prenatal ultrasound scan is a diagnostic technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to create an image of your fetus.

  • Ultrasounds may be performed at various times throughout pregnancy for different reasons.
  • The test can provide valuable information, helping women and their health-care providers manage and care for the pregnancy and the fetus.

You’re in good hands

Prenatal ultrasound examinations are performed in the hospital’s Advanced Fetal Care Center by pediatric radiologists and sonographers from the Department of Radiology. These professionals are experts in fetal imaging, and their diagnoses guide treatment both before and after birth.
