FETAL ANATOMY SURVEY ($150)
This is a level 1 OB Ultrasound which will include measurements of the baby’s head (BPD-bi-parital diameter and HC – head circumference), abdomen (abdominal circumference) and thigh bone (femur length). The 4 chamber view of the heart and outflow tracts, cranial anatomy, stomach, bladder, kidneys, spine, face, extremities, gender (optional), cord insertion and 3vessel cord will be documented. As well as the placenta location, fetal position and amniotic fluid. This scan can never completely guarantee that the baby will be born with no birth defects; however, it will give very strong reassurance.

Ultrasound Best Viewing Calendar
The highlighted dates are intended to give you a recommendation of when to come in. Based on our experience, this is when you will receive the best images of your baby. You may choose to come in as early as 6 weeks to meet and bond with your little one for the first time or as early as 12 weeks to have a 3D/4D ultrasound. If you are having twins we recommend you come in between 22 and 26 weeks for your 4D ultrasound.
