Comprehensive Services Offered by Our Ultrasound Clinics

At Northside/Northpoint OB-Gyn, our ultrasound services encompass a wide range of obstetrics imaging, designed to support and enhance your pregnancy journey from conception to birth.
This crucial transvaginal scan allows us to confirm the pregnancy dates, detect the fetal heartbeat, ensure the pregnancy is correctly located in the uterus, and determine if you’re expecting more than one baby. It’s the first step in providing you with the assurance and essential information about your pregnancy.
Following the first-trimester ultrasound, we offer the optional nuchal translucency scan at around 12 weeks of gestation. This non-invasive test, performed via abdominal ultrasound, is a critical component of prenatal screening for chromosomal abnormalities such as Down syndrome. In addition to assessing risk, this ultrasound provides a valuable early look at your baby’s development, offering reassurance and insight into the health of your growing baby.
The fetal anatomy scan, conducted around 20 weeks of gestation, is a comprehensive assessment of your baby’s development and well-being. This detailed ultrasound examines each part of your baby’s body, assessing organs, limbs, and other critical structures to ensure everything is developing as expected. It’s also during this scan that many parents look forward to learning the sex of their baby, a moment of joy and anticipation.

Frequently Asked Questions

We know every pregnancy is unique—your obstetrician will counsel you about the various testing options. The following will provide an overview of what to expect during your prenatal care visits, including ultrasound examinations and pregnancy blood tests.
Sonography is energy in the form of sound waves—a sonogram is an image produced by these waves. During an ultrasound appointment, a transducer sends sound waves through the body. The sound waves meet body fluids, tissues, and bones. These waves then bounce back like echoes. Our transducer technology receives these echoes, which are turned into images. The sonography images can be viewed as pictures on a video screen.
An in-office ultrasound is used to monitor pregnancy, as well as monitor and diagnose medical conditions that are not related to pregnancy.
An in-office ultrasound is a safe and effective tool for your provider and you to view a baby’s progress, position, and movements. Ultrasounds have been used for decades, and there is no evidence that they are harmful when used correctly.
Ultrasound is generally used to view the fetus inside your uterus. It allows your obstetrician-gynecologist (ob-gyn) to check the fetus’s development and health, monitor your pregnancy, and detect many congenital anomalies.
It is difficult to ascertain when precisely your provider will be able to determine your baby’s sex because it is dependent on the position of your baby during the ultrasound appointment. If your baby is in a good viewing position, then your provider can generally tell the sex of a baby around 19-21 weeks.
Most pregnant women will have at least two ultrasounds – one in the first trimester for dating and one in the second trimester for evaluation of the fetal anatomy. The nuchal translucency/early anatomy ultrasound is an optional examination.
