When you have a high-risk pregnancy or experience complications with your pregnancy, Billings Clinic is here to help. Working in partnership with your personal obstetrician, our Maternal-Fetal medicine team provides highly specialized care to diagnose and treat your unique health needs.
Billings Clinic’s fetal ultrasound services offers detailed images of your fetus to inform you about the health of your baby and to detect any problems during pregnancy. Our high-risk pregnancy patients receive the best ultrasound services available in the region. Our staff of nationally-certified ultrasonographers use optimal imaging technology to provide 2D-, 3D-, and 4D-resolution sonogram images.
Ultrascreen Screening Test
Our maternal-fetal specialists check for chromosomal abnormalities with an ultrascreen screening test, which is a combination of ultrasound and blood testing. This screening is available to all pregnant women who are in the gestational age between 11 weeks, 0 days and 13 weeks, 6 days.
Billings Clinic’s maternal-fetal medicine program is the first obstetric ultrasound program in Montana and northern Wyoming to be accredited by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM), a national organization committed to excellence in medical use of ultrasound.
