Ultrasound

Routine and high risk obstetrical and gynecological ultrasound examinations are performed in our office. Our expert ultrasound staff consists of Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (RDMS) with vast experience in the field of Obstetrics and Gynecology. 

Our ultrasound unit, which includes six suites, is accredited by the American Institute of Ultrasound Medicine and equipped with state-of-the-art technology to provide the most advanced examination available. We also provide ultrasound examinations for Maine Medical Center inpatients and outpatients at the Prenatal Diagnostic Unit.

A sampling of our ultrasound capabilities include: fetal anatomic survey, aneuploidy screening, first trimester screening, assessment of fetal well-being, analysis of fetal blood flow, identification of follicle growth for infertility, ovarian cancer screening and invasive procedures such as amniocentesis, percutaneous umbilical blood sampling, fetal blood transfusion, saline infusion sonohysterography and chorionic villi sampling. 3D and 4D ultrasound are used when there is a medical indication.

We gladly record examinations. Patients are welcome to bring their own CD or DVD, or may purchase one from us if interested.

Family and support individuals are always invited to participate in examinations or procedures.
