Frequently Asked Questions

How Can We Help?

Why Choose Ultrasound Made Easy?

Ultrasounds are the safest form of medical imaging. UME provides an affordable concierge experience in a family/patient centered environment. At UME it's all about YOU

How fast and efficient are results?

UME studies are performed by Registered Sonographers with more than 10 years of experience. If there is problem we pride ourselves that we are not just Sonographers but also patient advocates. Diagnostic studies are read by Board Certified Radiologist, reports are back within 24hrs. No order is needed when you don't use insurance. You will save TIME and MONEY

Is ultrasound safe?

Ultrasound uses sound waves, that are above our range of hearing. It does not use ionizing radiation, so there is no radiation exposure to patient or baby. After 40 years, studies have proven that ultrasound causes no harm to mother or baby.

Does this take place of an ultrasound at my Doctor's office?

Yes it can, if you want it to.  It's all about OPTIONS! Ultrasound Screenings are read by Radiologist and can take the place of referred ultrasound. Non-Diagnostic (the fun stuff) 3D/4D imaging is elective. They are in addition to ultrasounds ordered during pregnancy. But, can be used as confirmation of pregnancy. UME's services are meant to create a memorable experience for mom and family.

How far along should I be for a 3D/4D ultrasound?

We are able to do 2D ultrasounds as early as 6 1/2 weeks.  For 3D/4D we recommend 25-33 weeks for the best images.

Can you determine the sex of the baby?

Yes, in most cases the sex can be determined as early as 15 weeks, the UME sweet spot is 16 weeks . Certain factors can affect imaging such as maternal body habitus, development of the fetus, and fetal position. We will do our best but can't always guarantee that the baby will cooperate during your session.

Will I get perfect images of my little one?

More often than not we acquire great images! In some cases your little ones position, amniotic fluid and placental location will determine image quality. Sometimes baby's are face down or sleeping. In these cases babies are in control. No matter what challenges we face. UME promises to do our best!

Are elective ultrasounds covered by insurance?

No UME is self-pay only, only diagnostic ultrasounds are covered by insurance.  However, UME is more cost efficient than most insurance deductibles! For my pregnant momma's, you typically will receive one or two ultrasounds during your pregnancy, unless you're high risk. 3D/4D is a non-diagnostic elective service which is self pay. As a momma, who wouldn't want  A PEACE OF MIND, those memories are PRICELESS.

What should do to prepare for my ultrasound?

To prepare to see your baby eat well 30 minutes before your scan. Baby's seem to perform better when mommy is happy and comfortable.

What forms of payment are accepted?

UME accepts all forms of payment to include Credit, Debit, HSA cards, Gift Cards and Cash. UME can also provide Superbills for Insurance Reimbursement (upon request).
