OB-Ultrasound

The CMC Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology aims to provide continuing and advanced reproductive healthcare, through accessible, attainable, and affordable healthcare delivery systems. The Ultrasound Section of the Dept. of Ob-Gyne is fulfilling its commitment in providing quality healthcare by giving the best imaging techniques needed by the woman in all stages of her life.

Our ultrasound examination uses the latest technology, provides a wide range of imaging technology including 3D/4D scanning capability. All of our ultrasound scans are carried by the best sonologists in the country, and the faciility is accredited by the Philippine Society of Ultrasound in OB–Gyne (PSUOG).

An ultrasound test is a diagnostic technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the organs and structures of the body. The test can be used for many purposes including obtaining views of a developing fetus, the heart, abdominal organs and blood vessels

A fetal ultrasound sonogram, is an imaging technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of a baby in the uterus. Fetal ultrasound images can help your health care provider evaluate your baby's growth and development and determine how your pregnancy is progressing. A fetal ultrasound might also give you the chance to study your baby's profile months before delivery. In some cases, fetal ultrasound is used to evaluate possible problems or confirm a diagnosis.

 

The role of ultrasonography in obstetric practice has continuously evolved since its introduction more than 40 years ago. Indeed, it is difficult to imagine a modern obstetric practice without access to the information provided by real-time ultrasound. Using this imaging technique, clinicians can detect pregnancy as early as 3 weeks after conception, confirm or revise gestational age with reasonable accuracy, diagnose multiple gestation in early pregnancy, confidently diagnose fetal death at any gestational age, assess fetal well-being, evaluate amniotic fluid volume, and diagnose a broad variety of fetal malformations.

Advances in sonographic imaging are attributable to both improved image resolution and to better clinical interpretation of ultrasound findings. It is reassuring that in human pregnancy no adverse bioeffects appear to be caused by diagnostic ultrasound.

Fetal ultrasound is often done during the first trimester to confirm and date the pregnancy and again during the second trimester — between 18 and 20 weeks — when anatomic details are visible. If your baby’s health needs to be monitored more closely, ultrasounds may be repeated throughout the pregnancy.

Sophisticated fetal assessment tools to help support earlier, more detailed evaluations . Innovative probe technologies to support thorough evaluations of even the most challenging patients. The Ultrasound machine supports a wide range of advanced 2D and 3D probes, which enable high quality images with exceptional reliability. System intelligence and probe technology combine to produce outstanding image quality with minimal user interaction.

It can can help identify endometriosis, the presence of endometrial tissue outside the uterus, and general endometrium thickness. Ultrasound pelvic examination can help assess the number of measurable follicles and help monitor follicle development and monitoring. The gynecologic ultrasound enables the clinical to confirms findings of ovarian tumor, cancer, myoma and infertility.
