Prenatal patients seen in the Center for Women’s Health will receive a 3D ultrasound between eighteen and twenty weeks as part of their regular ultrasound appointment. Ultrasound images are then reviewed by Winona Health radiologists to verify the health of the baby and check for potential fetal abnormalities. “High resolution 3D ultrasound allows for high quality imaging. We can see the baby’s internal organs and facial features better than ever,” said Radiologist Matthew Hayes, MD. As a special keepsake, each patient will then receive photos during this ultrasound.
This special delivery was a gift from the Winona Health Auxiliary who raised funds to help purchase this machine. “The Winona Health Auxiliary felt that this piece of equipment was a priority for the organization. The 4D ultrasound machine was chosen to enhance the diagnostic capabilities of physicians to give our new mothers, fathers and their babies excellent care,” said Julieanne Schwemer 2010 Auxiliary president.
