Ultraview Imaging was built and designed with clients’ needs in mind. We understand that you may have questions prior to your appointment and encourage you to contact us if you need a question answered.
What if a problem is seen during the ultrasound exam?
Your doctor will be notified immediately. That is why it is so important to choose a facility that hires experienced sonographers that are licensed through the (ARDMS) American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonography. Ask to SEE the license of the person that is performing your ultrasound. Some facilities CLAIM to use licensed sonographers.
Do I need an appointment?
In most cases no, but it is best to make an appointment to alleviate the wait. We do offer same day appointments and walk-ins. We recommend that you schedule your appointment at least 2 weeks in advance, if a Saturday appointment is needed.
Do you take insurance?
We are NOW accepting insurance for our diagnostic ultrasounds. We are in network with Aetna Medicaid & Chip, Medicare, Cigna, Molina, Humana, Star Chip, Star Kids, Cook Health Plan, Children’s Health Plan and Superior-Ambetter. Elective (gender, 3D/4D ultrasounds will NOT be covered by insurance.) Elective ultrasounds are not intended to be a replacement for your doctor ordered diagnostic ultrasounds, you will need to pay the cost for this ultrasound as an out of pocket expense. We accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, and debit cards.
Can I bring family and friends?
Yes. In fact, we encourage our clients to invite family and friends to attend the Elective Ultrasound sessions. This is a joyous and wonderful experience, one that can be shared with your family and loved ones. We can comfortably accommodate 7-8 people in our viewing area but we don’t discourage more.
How should I prepare for my appointment?
DRINK PLENTY OF WATER!!! If you don’t normally drink water daily, you should consider doing so beginning at least 2-3 days before your scheduled appointment. Hydration can significantly improve the clarity of an ultrasound. Expectant mothers that are full-figured should consider scheduling their 4D ultrasound between 28 and 32 weeks of pregnancy, as the ultrasound tends to be clearer and the results more desirable and comparable to the images in our picture gallery.
Also be sure to wear a comfortable two-piece outfit. If wearing a dress, please bring a pair of shorts to put on underneath.
Are you able to tell the sex/gender of the baby?
Yes, we can provide an indication of the sex of the baby as early as 14 weeks (if you are a full figured mother please don’t schedule your appointment until 15wks). We can’t guarantee that the baby will cooperate during your session. Certain factors such as body tissue content, developmental stage and fetal position all affect the ability to determine sex. If that is the case we will have you to return at NO additional charge.
What can I do to get the BEST pictures?
DRINK PLENTY OF WATER!!! If you don’t normally drink water daily you should consider doing so beginning at least 2-3 days before your scheduled appointment. Hydration can significantly improve the clarity of an ultrasound. Expectant mothers that are full-figured should consider scheduling their 4D ultrasound between 28 and 32 weeks of pregnancy, as the ultrasound tends to be clearer and the results more desirable and comparable to the images in our picture gallery.
What is your cancellation, no show policy?
Ultraview Imaging has a flexible and fair cancellation policy. If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment for any reason, we ask that you please give us at least 24 hours’ notice. Ultraview Imaging reserves the right to charge a $25.00
What if there is severe weather?
IN CASE OF SEVERE WEATHER… Here at Ultraview Imaging, we do not want to jeopardize the health of our Mommies and precious little ones, so in the event of severe weather please follow the Arlington Public School closings. If their Public Schools are closed, then we will also be closed. If you are scheduled on a day when we are closed due to weather, we will gladly reschedule you as soon as possible in the first available time slot at your convenience. If you are coming from a distance during severe weather and you feel it is not safe to come for your appointment please call ahead and we will gladly reschedule you as well. Thanks for your cooperation and understanding.
