Obstetric Ultrasound

3D/4D Helps Complete the Picture

An obstetrical (OB) ultrasound exam can be one of the most awe-inspiring studies that we perform. Our enhanced 3D/4D capabilities allow for facial images and movement of the unborn child to be captured real-time in three or four dimensions. These personal moments are shared with a caring and compassionate technologist who understands the complex emotions of the visit.

The First Trimester Screening exam is an easy and noninvasive study that is recommended for pregnant women of all ages to monitor the health of their baby. Using an ultrasound exam in combination with a blood draw, First Trimester Screening can help rule out certain genetic disorders and their risk to the new child.

At Washington Radiology, introducing moms to-be to their unborn child is our specialty. Our physicians are well-respected for their expertise in OB ultrasound, and the naturally warm and soothing nature of our team. Fully board-certified and holding subspecialty credentials in ultrasound, our radiologists are passionate about providing an exceptional experience that is easy and efficient.

Preparing For Your OB Ultrasound Exam

Patient peace of mind starts with the right preparation. To obtain the best possible study results, it is important that you follow the instructions below.

During scheduling, a Washington Radiology team member will review with you the preparation instructions specific to your OB Ultrasound exam. These instructions are repeated here for easy reference.

In addition to the written order from your doctor, please remember to bring to your appointment any prior images or reports from outside Washington Radiology if related to the reason for your visit with us.  

  • To accurately perform this study, it is important for your bladder to be full.
  • Please do not empty your bladder beginning two hours prior to your examination.
  • It is not necessary to drink any specific amount of water before your arrival.

If you have any follow-up questions about these preparations, please contact the Washington Radiology office where your exam is scheduled and ask to speak with the nurse.
