Why get an Ultrasound?
It's a non-invasive medical test that allows radiologists capture images that aid in diagnosing conditions without the use of radiation. Because ultrasound images are captured in real time, they can also show organs functioning, as well as blood flow.

Alice Hyde uses a GE Voluson 730 with obstetric patients to perform pre-natal scans throughout the course of pregnancy. This device also offers 3D imagery.
