The reflected sound waves are then returned as echoes. The echoes are then recorded and displayed as real-time visual images. OB (obstetric) sonography refers the use of ultrasound to visualize and determine the condition of a pregnant woman and her fetus.

OB Ultrasounds

OB Ultrasound scans are currently considered to be a safe, non-invasive investigation of the fetus. It plays an important role in the care of every pregnant woman. This examination has many indications, such as: to evaluate the position of the fetus, diagnose congenital abnormalities, and to determine if there are multiple pregnancies, etc. This exam can be considered special to the birth parents because it allows them to have their first glimpse of their unborn child and to possibly determine the sex of the baby.

GYN Ultrasounds

GYN (gynecology) Ultrasounds evaluate organs found within the female pelvic region. A GYN ultrasound can help identify ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, as well as possible uterine or ovarian masses. A pelvic ultrasound scan can be done transabdominal and transvaginal/endovaginal.
