Sonography, or Ultrasound, utilizes high frequency sound waves (not x-rays) to obtain diagnostic images. Ultrasound imaging is used to evaluate many parts of the body, including the abdomen, blood vessels, fetus of pregnant women, superficial body structures, and newborn brain to name only a few.
Real time live 3D (4D) Sonography provides a three-dimensional view of the fetus in motion and is one of the most important modern innovations in the field of Ultrasound.
The clear view of the fetus from all angles allows doctors to detect any congenital abnormalities at an early stage and chart a course for corrective measures at an early and preventable stage.
The image quality is so clear and sharp that one can get a fairly accurate impression of how the baby's features will look upon birth.
At NM Medical all our sonography suites are equipped with high-end plasma screens to allow the expectant mother to view the baby growing inside her in the course of her pregnancy.
One can view the baby yawning, sucking its thumb, kicking its feet, and moving its hands. We also provide all pregnancy sonography patients with a collection of video clips and images of the unborn child to create a lifelong memory for the mother and the child!
