Accreditation by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine demonstrates our clinical excellence and commitment to the highest quality patient care when providing diagnostic ultrasound services. To become accredited, we had to undergo a rigorous and detailed application process. Why? Because we care about you!
Obstetrics & Gynecology Associates offers a state of the art ultrasound department. Our ultrasonographers are licensed and experienced in all aspects of obstetric and gynecologic ultrasound.
Here are some particular facts you need to know before you arrive for your ultrasound.
A full bladder is NOT required.
An initial vaginal ultrasound is performed to evaluate the uterus and the ovaries. The physician will then place a small tube through the cervix and dispense a small amount of saline solution into the uterus while the ultrasound is being performed. The results will be available to the patient immediately after the scan is complete.
As our rooms are small and too many people in the room can be a distraction for the technician, only two (2) guests may accompany you to your ultrasound. Children under the age of five (5) must have adult supervision other than the patient. Additionally, all cell phones must remain OFF during your ultrasound scan.
Obstetrics & Gynecology Associates is proud to be AIUM accredited in Obstetric & Gynecologic Ultrasound!
AIUM accreditation, a voluntary peer-review process, involves a stem-to-stern, top-to-bottom check-up on all aspects of ultrasound. These aspects include Physician and Ultrasound Tech qualifications, physical facilities, the ultrasound machines, the detailed protocols for performing each ultrasound test, and the policies in place for safeguarding the health and safety of every patient who has an ultrasound examination, plus much more.
