Fetal Ultrasound Services

Pregnancy is an exciting time and many expectant parents are eager to check in on their growing baby. Through sophisticated fetal imaging at Sidra Medicine, we can assess the overall health and wellness of your developing child and provide you with the opportunity to see them before they’re born. Fetal imaging is accomplished through ultrasound, a painless, safe imaging technique that uses no radiation. In ultrasound, sound waves echo into the womb and back into the receiver. A computer then processes the sounds it and uses them to create a live-feed video of the fetus and womb.

Ultrasound facts:

  • The procedure is safe, painless, and radiation-free for both mother and baby
  • A typical ultrasound lasts 20 to 30 minutes
  • You will need to drink plenty of water before the procedure for a clearer image
  • Ultrasound can be used to determine the sex of the baby around 16 months into pregnancy
  • Ultrasound may be used in interventional radiology procedures if a doctor needs to perform a test or treatment on the fetus while in the womb
