Finding out you’re pregnant can be scary and following a positive pregnancy test it is important to have an ultrasound. Ultrasounds are performed to confirm pregnancy, detect fetal heartbeat, determine fetal age, determine due date, and determine location of the pregnancy (intrauterine/ectopic).

 At BFR Medical, we offer a limited obstetrical ultrasound performed by a sonographer. Services are completely free of charge, professional, and safe. 

What's an ultrasound?

An ultrasound, or sonogram, is a medical procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the inside of your body. It’s also known as sonography. Unlike other imaging techniques, ultrasound uses no radiation. For this reason, it’s the preferred method for viewing a developing fetus during pregnancy.

A sonogram is a routine part of prenatal care. A hand-held transducer is pressed against the skin and sends high-pitch sound waves that humans are unable to hear. The sound waves bounce off internal organs and structures and are received by the transducer. The machine constantly translates the sound waves into images on the monitor. This allows real-time viewing of what is happening inside the body, including viewing fetal heartbeat and movements.

There is no special preparation for your ultrasound exam. A specially trained sonographer will ask you a few questions relating to your pregnancy before the exam begins.

Most ultrasounds are fast and easy, with little discomfort. Contact us today for to schedule an appointment
