Ultrasound is used to monitor pregnancy and to diagnose and monitor medical conditions that are not related to pregnancy.
Ultrasound is used to view the fetus inside the uterus. It allows your obstetrician–gynecologist (ob-gyn) or other health care professional to check the fetus’s health and development, monitor your pregnancy, and detect many congenital anomalies. Ultrasound also is used during chorionic villus sampling and amniocentesis to help guide these procedures.
Great Plains Women’s Health Center is an Accredited Practice with the American Institute of Ultrasound Medicine (AIUM). AIUM ultrasound practice accreditation is a voluntary peer review process that allows practices to demonstrate that they meet or exceed nationally recognized standards in the performance and interpretation of diagnostic ultrasound examinations.
