The Women’s Group uses ultrasounds to diagnose a variety of different conditions, as well as evaluate pregnancies. Patients in and around Pensacola, Florida should contact The Women’s Group to learn more.
An ultrasound is an imaging test our staff at The Women’s Group uses to look at the uterus, ovaries, and other reproductive structures. The test works by using sound waves to capture images of internal structures.
Our doctors at The Women’s Group recommend an ultrasound when a woman experiences pain, abnormal bleeding, or another problem involving the reproductive system. Ultrasounds are also used at several points during pregnancy to evaluate the development of the baby.
In addition to standard ultrasounds, The Women’s Group offers 3D/4D ultrasounds to pregnant patients. These ultrasounds provide the mother with keepsake images and video of the baby.
During the ultrasound, our technician uses a wand to study different internal structures. If the doctor ordered a vaginal ultrasound, the technician places the wand in the vagina. Alternatively, if the doctor ordered an abdominal ultrasound, the technician places the wand on the woman’s abdomen. The technician then moves the wand throughout the procedure to capture different images and measure different structures. All of the results are delivered to the patient’s doctor following the test.
Ultrasounds aren’t painful. Some women report discomfort during vaginal ultrasounds, but that’s usually mild and short-lived.
A 3D/4D ultrasound captures three-dimensional images and video of the baby. The Women’s Group offers these ultrasounds to women at 27-28 weeks gestation. The 3D/4D ultrasound procedure is the same as the procedure used in a standard abdominal ultrasound.
The Women’s Group schedules ultrasounds so that patients receive results from the doctor as quickly as possible after the procedure. Call The Women’s Group or schedule your next ultrasound appointment online.
