water. If you do not normally drink water daily you should
consider doing so beginning at least 5 days before your scheduled
appointment. Hydration can really improve the clarity of an
ultrasound. Have a good meal 30-60 minutes before your
appointment. Try and include fruit or fruit juice with your
(unless otherwise ordered by your physician).
my 3D ultrasound images always turn out the way I expect?
sometimes if the baby is persistently looking away from
us, or if hands and feet are in the way it may be difficult to see the
baby's face. Issues that can make the images less than perfect are: the
amount of fluid around the area of interest, the location of the
placenta, age of the fetus, and fetal position. However, we do our very
best to get the best images of your baby! Each baby will scan
differently, and we can make no promises that the images will always
meet your expectations. We do promise, however to do everything we can
to get the very best images possible. Restrictions do apply.
What happens in the event of closures due to do weather, power outage, or machine malfunction?
Due to the time sensitivity of our
appointments, in the event of closures, only the appointments on the
days of closures will be rescheduled/moved to other days.
Do you accept walk-ins?
Our services are offered by appointment only.
All appointments run on time and time is allotted per person and affects
the following appointment. Arriving late to an appointment will result
in rescheduling your visit to a later date. Restrictions do apply.
What is HD Live Technology?
GE's HD live ultrasound technology uses a unique and moveable light
source inside the probe that not only provides both 3D/4D imaging, but also "lights up" the baby,
making it possible for parents to see their baby's facial expressions.   An HD live ultrasound provides
extraordinary views of your baby by providing better depth perception.  We can change the position of the
light and more clearly see the baby's lips, nose and eye lids.  You can upgrade any of our affordable 3D/4D
ultrasound packages to HD Live.  You must mention you would like to upgrade to HD Live when scheduling an
appointment.  Please refer to the "Packages" section of the website for pricing.
