Obstetrical Ultrasounds Picture

Obstetrical Ultrasound

This safe, common imaging technique uses sound waves to allow our highly trained and accredited specialists at Perinatal Associates of New Mexico to take a peek inside to examine your baby and other internal soft-tissue organs.

Our physicians personally perform all Level III exams and fetal echocardiograms, and review all ultrasounds we perform. We are always happy to answer any questions you have about your ultrasound.

There are several reasons your doctor may have requested that you have an ultrasound at PANM. We can determine appropriate gestational age to give you the most reliable due date, thoroughly assess your unborn baby’s anatomy for possible birth defects, and detect underlying maternal health issues.

After an ultrasound is performed you may be asked to return for further evaluation. In most cases, this is just to ensure that we have seen your baby’s anatomy completely. You may, however, be asked to return because of an ultrasound finding.

Our expert medical team will help you understand the diagnosis fully and will make sure you’re comfortable with any ensuing treatment plans. Some reasons for return evaluation may be:

  • CPC (Choroid Plexus Cyst)
  • EICF (Echogenic Intracardiac Focus)
  • Polyhydramnios
  • Oligohydramnios
  • Increased Nuchal Fold
  • Fetal Growth
  • Preterm birth assessment

I was referred to Perinatal Associates due to Advanced Maternal Age so my first initial appointment was pretty lengthy having met with a Genetic Counselor and then the ultrasound and consult w/ a doctor to follow. I learned things I wasn’t even aware of and may seem scary to some people, but I found that the information given was very helpful for future planning. The Providers and staff were very knowledgeable, kind, understanding and caring! I’m grateful that I didn’t have any real complications other than my age, but if I did I am confident that Perinatal Associates would have held my hand and yours should you need it through any uncertainties, time of need and/ or difficulties. The entire staff is amazing from the Front office all the way up to the Providers.
