A new arrival! The Center for Women’s Health welcomes their new 4D ultrasound machine for prenatal patients. The GE VOLUSON 730 PRO ultrasound machine displays three-dimensional ultrasound images as they happen, showing detailed fetal anatomy. “Having the latest ultrasound technology available to our patients is an exciting thing. Prenatal patients can be seen right here in our community for high quality care and high quality images of their baby,” said Troy Shelton, MD.
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.
