A detailed obstetrical ultrasound is performed during the second trimester of pregnancy (over 18 weeks). It examines your baby and the position of the placenta. It includes a head-to-toe examination of your baby’s abdominal organs and the heart, arms, hands, legs, feet, eyes, nose, lips and the brain anatomy.
We will take measurements to determine your baby’s growth and how many “weeks” since conception. Most pregnancies have a gestation period of 40 weeks. The amount of amniotic fluid and position of the placenta will also be evaluated.
We can give you the baby images from your obstetrical ultrasound exams on a complimentary USB, to share with family and friends. Please speak with one of our clinic receptionists for more details.
We do our best to have our radiologists interpret the information and forward the results to your doctor by the next business day.
This exam is covered under the Alberta and Saskatchewan Health Care Plans.
Please ensure that you bring your requisition with you to your appointment.
