I’ve heard of those “Keepsake Facilities”. Why is Northwest Prenatal Ultrasound different?
Before we opened, we too had heard the controversy over so-called keepsake ultrasound facilities. We did our research on what other companies had done in the past to cause these concerns, and to find out what we could do to set ourselves apart. We have policies and protocols in place to ensure that we go above and beyond what is expected of us. We are a Medical Imaging facility, like an MRI center for example, but instead – we specialize in prenatal ultrasounds. If you look, most other 3D facilities only offer elective services, and do not offer diagnostics. We would fall in the same category as an OB office or hospital providing elective 3D ultrasounds as well as diagnostic services. All our elective scans are limited to 10-25 minutes which is within the time frame that has been proven safe over the last 35+ years. A requirement of employment with us is that all of our ultrasound technologists not only have extensive OB experience, but we also require that they be ARDMS certified. Thi
