First Trimester OB Ultrasound
Prior to Week 14 of Your Pregnancy
Your first trimester obstetric ultrasound, often called a sonogram, typically occurs before week 14 of your pregnancy. An ultrasound is a specialized exam that uses sound waves to visualize your baby.
The first early ultrasound can provide you with important information regarding your due date. The heartbeat can be detected and viewed around 6 weeks gestation by vaginal scan and from 8-9 weeks by abdominal scan. Accurate measurements and images are taken to measure your baby from head to bottom, often called the crown to rump length.
Biophysical Profile With or Without Stress Test
A biophysical profile (BPP) helps track the health of your baby during pregnancy. A BPP is commonly performed during the third trimester and includes an ultrasound evaluation with or without a nonstress test.
The BPP measures your baby’s heart rate, muscle tone, movement, breathing, and amniotic fluid levels. If your assessment includes the nonstress test, the sonographer will attach two belts to your abdomen to monitor the baby’s heart rate and movement.
An ultrasound is an important part of the evaluation and treatment process for many gynecologic symptoms and conditions. From abdominal pain to infertility, our 3D enhancement helps us make the diagnosis to get you on track with your individualized treatment plan.
Transabdominal or Transvaginal
A pelvic ultrasound is an exam that uses sound waves to make a picture of the organs and structures in the pelvis. This can help identify and diagnose potential problems such as pelvic or abdominal pain, heavy or painful periods, or other possible irregularities.
The OBGYN Ultrasound Program performs pelvic ultrasounds either transabdominally or transvaginally. Color doppler and 3D imaging may be used during your ultrasound exam to aid in a diagnosis. The color doppler technology tracks the blood flow in your pelvic organs while the 3D enhancement allows our physicians to view the height, depth, and width of your organs.
Saline Infusion Sonohysterogram (SIS)
A sonohysterogram is an ultrasound technique that provides pictures of the inside of your uterus along with its lining, called the endometrium. This procedure begins like a transvaginal pelvic ultrasound and then injects saline (salt water) into your uterus to better view its contour and shape.
This exam, combined with our 3D imaging, helps diagnose some common gynecologic conditions including polyps, fibroids, and other adhesions. A sonohysterogram is a valuable tool when caring for women who may be experiencing infertility or recurrent miscarriage.
The OBGYN Ultrasound Program is accredited with the prestigious American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) and shows our commitment to clinical excellence and the highest quality patient care.
