Ultrasound technology uses high-frequency sound waves that bounce off tissue and return to the ultrasound machine at different frequencies, depending on the density of the tissues. It then translates those returning sound waves into images for viewing on the computer monitor.
Most of the time, parents can see their baby’s head, spine, hands and fingers, feet and toes, heartbeat and more. Often we see the baby’s profile and face. With smaller babies, larger portions of the baby can be viewed at one time on the monitor.
We will be happy to check the gender if you so desire, but we recommend waiting until 20 weeks gestation or later. Gender determination cannot be guaranteed since we must rely on the cooperation of your baby and other factors beyond our control.
Absolutely! Due to limited space, we do ask that you limit your accompaniment to three family members or friends. Small children need to be accompanied by an adult other than the patient, and no food or drinks are allowed.
