Bay Wellness - How Can An Ultrasound Help?


Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of organs and structures inside the body.

During pregnancy, doctors use ultrasound to examine the fetus and mother. Unlike x-rays, ultrasound  does not involve exposure to radiation. Ultrasounds also aid diagnosis and treatment of gynecologic  issues.

OB/GYN Steven C. Goldberg, M.D., FACOG says that the on-site ultrasound at Bay Practices “makes it very  convenient for our obstetric and gynecologic patients. We are a certified by the American Institute of  Ultrasound in Medicine and offer ultrasound procedures performed by a certified ultrasound technician  right here at our office. Procedures can be scheduled conveniently for our patients. They know exactly  where we are located, and the majority of patients receive their results right away.” This is especially  comforting for patients who may have pregnancy complications or a family history of ovarian cancer, adds  Dr. Goldberg.

“I read my patient’s results and report them to the patient during the same visit,” says Dr. Goldberg. “By  the time a patient leaves our office, she has a potential diagnosis and a plan of action. Patients  appreciate knowing their results immediately and being able to determine next steps in their plan of care.”

During pregnancy, ultrasound can be used to:
• Determine gestational age
• Document the viability of the fetus
• Confirm a visible heartbeat
• Survey the anatomy of the fetus, measure its size and observe its growth
• Confirm multiple pregnancies
• Monitor the health of the fetus in later pregnancy
• Check amniotic fluid levels, fetal movement and breathing
• Screen for physical and chromosomal abnormalities such as birth defects
• Investigate vaginal bleeding and concern for miscarriage
• And of course, help answer the question that Dr. Goldberg says ninety-five percent of parents want to  know, “Is the baby a boy or a girl?”

Gynecologic ultrasounds are used to:
• Help diagnose pelvic or abdominal pain
• Diagnose and examine ovarian cysts and fibroid tumors
• Investigate irregular bleeding
• Investigate heavy menstrual bleeding
• Examine suspected pelvic or abdominal abnormality found on physical exam.
