Obstetric Ultrasounds

At the Fetal Diagnostic Center, our specialized team uses advanced 3D/4D obstetric ultrasound technology that delivers superior image quality and diagnostic capabilities to accurately diagnose prenatal issues and provide effective treatment options designed to achieve optimal health outcomes for both mother and baby.

Pregnancy-related Screenings

  • Most accurate test for the baby for birth defect and other concerns
  • Cervical screening to assess the risk of preterm delivery
  • Monitoring of multiple gestations (twins, triplets, complicated multiples, etc.)
  • Screening for early pregnancy complications
  • Gender – can be determined as early as 12 weeks by ultrasound
  • Cell free fetal DNA screening (NIPT) for common fetal genetic conditions

Fetal Development Screenings

  • Fetal echocardiography to asses fetal heart development, including heart rate, structure and function
  • Fetal biophysical profile testing, such as muscle tone, movement and gestures, respiration, amniotic fluid volume, eyelid movement, sleep times, etc.)
  • Doppler studies to measure fetal blood flow throughout the body
  • Fetal dating and growth scans
  • Genetic sonogram screening (targeted or Level II sonogram) for fetal development, including the uterus, placenta, cervix and ovaries (within 16 – 22 weeks of gestation, or second trimester)

Fetal Screenings for Known or Suspected Anomalies

  • Fetal screening to exclude the presence of most birth defects
  • Detection of signs related to fetal malformation or higher risk for genetic abnormalities
  • Identification of skeletal abnormalities
  • Detection of physical conditions, such as spina bifida, cleft palate, club foot and cleft lip
  • Abnormal aneuploidy screening to detect fetal chromosomal abnormalities, such as Down syndrome (within 9 – 13 weeks of gestation, or first trimester)
  • First trimester nuchal translucency screening for common chromosome disorders
