Specialty physician complete packaged procedure.
Obstetric ultrasound is the use of ultrasound scans in pregnancy.
Real-time scanners provide a continuous picture of the moving fetus depicted on a monitor screen.
A transducer is placed in contact with the maternal abdomen and is moved to ‘look at’ any particular content of the uterus.
Ultrasound beams scan the fetus and are recomposed back into a picture on the monitor screen (a sonogram, or ultrasonogram).
Movements such as fetal heartbeat and malformations in the fetus can be assessed and measurements can be made accurately on the images displayed on the screen.
Such measurements form the cornerstone in the assessment of gestational age, size, and growth in the fetus.
Obstetric ultrasonography ob-gyn exam cost includes the facility fee, physician’s fee, related medical procedures, and drugs required to administer the plan of care.
Not included are diagnostic studies, consultations with additional specialists, and cost of complication management; travel, food, and lodging.
