Ultrasound

Diagnosing certain medical conditions can be difficult from an external examination. In these cases, ultrasound can be a useful tool for finding the cause of gynecological problems.  It is safe, completely non-invasive, and is performed in the convenience of our offices. Currently we use ultrasound for:

  • Pregnancy Management
    • Anatomical evaluation, including cardiac and organ development
    • Monitoring of fetal size and growth
    • Evaluation of placenta and amniotic fluid
    • Evaluation of fetal well being
    • Biophysical Profile (BPP) Doppler studies
    • Fetal Position
    • Multiple Pregnancies (Twins, Triplets, etc.)
    • Evaluation of cervix in cases of pre-term labor
  • Early Pregnancy Management
    • Diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy
    • Diagnosis of early pregnancy loss (suspected miscarriage)
    • Establishment of accurate dates
