At Magee-Womens Imaging, our board-certified perinatologists use ultrasound to produce images that help doctors determine the size, shape, and position of the developing baby and diagnose certain gynecological problems.
Our experts are subspecialty-trained in maternal-fetal-medicine, which involves the care of women with high-risk pregnancies. This additional training allows them to better identify abnormalities associated with the pregnancy, and help counsel the patient about what this means for their baby. Additionally, our experts have the experience needed to perform complex diagnostic and therapeutic procedures during pregnancy.
