Ultrasound/Sonogram services are available on site at both Camelback Women’s Health locations for both prenatal and gynecology scans.
We respectfully request that you arrive for ultrasound appointments at least 10 minutes early and with a full bladder. Any late arrivals may need to be rescheduled as a courtesy to patients scheduled after you. If you do need to be rescheduled, we will do our best to accommodate you on the same day, however, if the schedule is full you will need to be rescheduled to another day. We do appreciate your assistance in keeping our ultrasound schedule on-time.
We will allow 2 adult visitors to join you in the room during the exam and strongly encourage you to leave small children at home. If you bring a small child to your appointment, please be sure to have another adult with you to watch your child during the exam. The sonographer will not be able to watch your child while she is performing the exam. We, unfortunately, do not have the resources available to provide child care services during your ultrasound visit and for safety reasons, we cannot move forward with the examination with an unattended child in the room
Photography and/or videos during ultrasound examinations are not allowed, however, you will be given a print-out of the photos for you to take home to show your loved ones. (***Please note that we cannot replace lost copies of ultrasound scans/images***)
In addition to abdominal and pelvic scans, obstetric sonograms are also performed (including: Level II (full anatomical survey), nuchal translucency, fetal biophysical profile, Doppler velocimetry, echocardiography, and Doppler echocardiography) with our state-of-the-art GE Voluson E8 ultrasound equipment by our expertly trained sonographers.
The ultrasound images are digitally transmitted to David Nyberg, MD, a well-respected radiologist and an authority in the fields of ultrasound imaging and fetal & women’s health. Dr. Nyberg evaluates the images and produces a written report which is sent directly back to Camelback Women’s Health physicians and nurse practitioners. Once the reports are received, the ordering provider will contact you to discuss the next steps in your care or discuss them at your next regularly scheduled appointment.
