Obstetrical Ultrasound

What is an obstetric ultrasound?

Obstetric ultrasounds use sound waves to create an image of your developing baby inside your uterus. The sound waves travel from a handpiece (transducer) and bounce off the tissues and fluids in your body.

The team at Perinatal Diagnostic Centers of New York and New Jersey is certified by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM), an organization dedicated to safe and effective ultrasounds in medicine. 

What are the different obstetric ultrasound procedures?

The experts at Perinatal Diagnostic Centers of New York and New Jersey use the most advanced technology for obstetric ultrasounds. They administer the following procedures with the Voluson™ E10 ultrasound device by GE Healthcare:

Pregnancy confirmation

An ultrasound can confirm that you’re pregnant and count the number of fetuses. Your provider may also be able to estimate how far along you are (gestational age).

Nuchal translucency

Nuchal translucency (NT) screening occurs in the first trimester. This test checks for chromosomal abnormalities by looking for excess fluid behind the fetus’s neck.

Detailed fetal anatomy

A detailed fetal anatomy scan occurs about halfway through your pregnancy. In addition to showing your baby’s sex (if you want to know), this test helps your provider evaluate your baby’s anatomy, including the brain, facial features, heart, and spine.

Fetal growth evaluation

Ultrasounds allow your provider to estimate your baby’s size and weight. This helps determine whether they’re growing as expected.

Biophysical profile

You may need a biophysical profile to monitor a high-risk pregnancy. This prenatal test combines fetal heart rate monitoring and an ultrasound to check your baby’s breathing, heart rate, movements, muscle tone, and amniotic fluid.

Doppler ultrasounds

Doppler ultrasounds show the movement of blood through arteries. Certain conditions, such as placental abnormalities, may require Doppler ultrasounds. The team at Perinatal Diagnostic Centers of New York and New Jersey offers Dopplers of the umbilical artery, cerebral artery, and uterine artery. 

Placental mapping

Placental mapping with ultrasound helps your provider assess the location of an abnormally positioned placenta. This may occur with conditions like placenta previa and morbidly adherent placenta (MAP).
