An Ultrasound Facility You Can Trust
Our facility is accredited by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (A.I.U.M.), a process that requires a peer-reviewed examination of all aspects of our 3-D and 4-D ultrasound care, including:
- Physician qualifications
- Physical facilities
- The Ultrasound machines
- Protocols for performing each ultrasound test
- Policies for safeguarding the health and safety of each patient
We undergo this extensive audit every three years.
3-D Ultrasound for Advanced GYN Diagnostics
3-D ultrasound lets us use advanced imaging technology to evaluate the condition of your uterus, ovaries, cervix, fallopian tubes and endometrium and determine the cause of pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding and other menstrual problems. By providing clear, detailed images, these tests are particularly helpful in:
- Detecting ovarian cysts and fibroids
- Finding ovarian or uterine cancer
- Monitoring fetal development
Why suffer in silence when a 3-D GYN ultrasound can help us diagnose and treat your problem?
See the Difference a 3-D Ultrasound Can Make
Imaging tests are only as good as the pictures they produce. Take, for example, a 38-year-old patient bothered by spotting between periods and heavy menstrual flow. She had consulted a physician at another practice, who preformed a 2-D ultrasound on her uterus. Based on the images below, this physician read her ultrasound as “normal.”
The patient then consulted the Rubino OB/GYN Group, where she underwent a 3-D ultrasound, performed while a small amount of saline solution was infused into her uterine cavity. That more advanced test identified a large mass shown below. The 3-D ultrasound also captured three dimensions of the mass, allowing her physician to better assess the problem.
The physician performed an in-office operative hysteroscopy to remove the mass, resolving the patient’s bleeding problems and improving her lifestyle.
4-D Gynecological Ultrasound
4-D ultrasound (time being the fourth dimension) is most commonly used in perineal ultrasounds to evaluate pelvic floor disorders. The 4-D allows movement to be recorded and evaluated.
Better images. Better outcomes. That’s the beauty of 3-D /4-D ultrasound.
