Ultrasound Services

Using high-frequency sound waves, the accredited staff at our OB-GYN practice will show you your baby and how far along you are. Our AIUM accreditation ensures that our facility provides excellent patient care while meeting the nationally accepted standards in diagnostic ultrasound practices. This means we employ qualified personnel who use the most current ultrasound technology and equipment. Our services include:

1st-3rd Trimester Obstetrical Ultrasounds | Second Trimester Detailed Evaluation of Fetal Anatomy Gynecologic Ultrasounds  

Abdominal  | Thyroid Ultrasound


This procedure begins with a transvaginal ultrasound exam that allows our medical staff to evaluate your pelvic organs. A small catheter will then be inserted into the uterus through the cervix, and a small amount of saline solution (salt water) will be injected through the catheter. The saline solution fills the uterine cavity, enabling the visualization and detection of any abnormalities.

The Latest Equipment

We have recently updated both of our ultrasound units to Philips™ EPIC Elite ultrasound machines, equipped with an independent monitor for your viewing comfort. This is the top-of-the-line model that Philips offers in women's health care.
