Ultrasound Q & A

What is an Ultrasound?

An ultrasound is a safe and noninvasive procedure that uses soundwave technology to generate images. The expert OB/GYNs at Woodglen Medical Group use ultrasounds to diagnose medical conditions, examine your baby in utero, or serve as a guide during a biopsy.

As a state-of-the-art facility, Woodglen Medical Group offers a number of on-site ultrasound options, including:

  • 3D and 4D ultrasounds for pregnancy
  • Nuchal Translucency (NT) ultrasound
  • Breast ultrasound and biopsy
  • Pelvic, abdominal, vaginal, renal, and thyroid ultrasounds

Whatever health concern you have, the team can often provide answers with their on-site ultrasound technology.

What Can I Expect During a Pregnancy Ultrasound?

Seeing your baby for the first time is an emotional experience. For better imaging, Woodglen Medical Group offers 3D and 4D ultrasounds. These ultrasounds work just like traditional ultrasounds, but they use advanced technology to create a 3D image of your baby and 4D live-action video, allowing you to see the details of your baby’s face and body.

These images also help your doctor identify birth defects, such as a cleft palate, that may be more difficult to see on a standard ultrasound.

The standard ultrasound is still a very useful tool, and the team at Woodglen Medical Group use the images from this ultrasound to examine your baby’s internal organs.

What is an NT Test?

An NT test is a screening tool completed during your first trimester to identify birth defects such as Down syndrome. It includes a fingerstick blood test and a standard ultrasound. The NT test is optional but may be recommended if you have a high-risk pregnancy.

What is a Breast Ultrasound?

A breast ultrasound may be recommended if lumps or other abnormalities are found in your breast tissue after an examination or mammogram. The breast ultrasound may also serve as a guide for a breast biopsy.

What is a Pelvic Ultrasound?

A pelvic ultrasound generates images of your reproductive organs, including your vagina, uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes, and ovaries.

There are two methods for performing a pelvic ultrasound:

  • Transabdominal: ultrasound wand placed on your abdomen
  • Transvaginal: a special ultrasound wand placed in your vagina

The women’s health experts at Woodglen Medical Group may recommend a pelvic ultrasound to look for fibroids or cysts, measure and assess your reproductive organs, or identify inflammation or infection.
