Our Prenatal Diagnosis Services
   

Ultrasound – the painless use of sound waves to create detailed moving pictures of your baby in real-time, allowing our sonographers to evaluate fetal growth and to detect fetal malformations.

Amniocentesis– the removal (under continuous ultrasound guidance) of a small amount of fluid surrounding the baby, which can be used to detect chromosomal problems, open neural tube defects and other inherited conditions, and to determine fetal lung maturity.
Chorionic villus sampling (CVS) – the removal (under continuous ultrasound guidance) of a small amount of placental tissue, either transabdominally or transvaginally, to test for chromosomal problems or genetic disorders.
Genetic Counseling – An approximately one-hour appointment with a genetic counselor or geneticist to discuss prenatal diagnostic choices and individual risks of genetic problems.
First-trimester screening – involves a fetal ultrasound combined with a
blood test to indicate if your pregnancy is at a higher chance for Down syndrome
or Trisomy 18. Instant preliminary risk assessment is available when the blood test is done one week prior to the ultrasound.
Second-trimester serum screening (for those missing the first trimester testing) – a blood test which measures four fetal chemical markers and screens for Down syndrome, Trisomy 18, open neural tube defects and other abnormalities.
 
California integrated screening – involves an ultrasound and a blood test in the first trimester (instant preliminary risk assessment is available when the blood test is done one week prior to the ultrasound), followed by a blood test in the second trimester, to assess your risk for Down syndrome, Trisomy 18, open neural tube defects and other less common abnormalities.
