Fetal Diagnostic Center in Burlington, VT
At the Fetal Diagnostic Center, we offer ultrasound and other diagnostic services to assist patients and their obstetricians and midwives to learn more about the health of their fetuses. It is our goal to reassure families when pregnancies are normal and to diagnose abnormalities that are present and compassionately help families understand the impact of those findings.
Fetal Diagnostic Center: What You Need to Know
Experienced, Trusted Expertise
The Fetal Diagnostic Center is accredited by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine in the area of obstetrical ultrasound, one of only 6 practices in the state receiving that accreditation and the only one that makes assessment of the fetus their primary focus. Additionally, we have 3 individuals who are certified by the Fetal Medicine Foundation to perform Nuchal Translucency measurements as part of the Ultrascreen, a first-trimester Down syndrome/trisomy 18 risk assessment study.
We offer this screening both to low-risk women who wish to obtain aneuploidy screening as early as possible and also to high-risk women who wish to learn their risk as accurately as possible before making a decision regarding invasive diagnostic tests such as amniocentesis or chorion villus sampling.
The Fetal Diagnostic Center at Fletcher Allen is a collaborative approach to prenatal diagnosis and counseling. The Maternal Fetal Medicine Division of the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, the Department of Radiology, the Pediatric Cardiology Division in the Department of Pediatrics and the Department of Genetics work together to help women and their families understand what is available to confirm and maintain the health and well-being of their baby-to-be. While it is our wish that all of the families we meet have normal babies, when there is an increased risk of an abnormality or an abnormality is discovered, it is our goal and commitment to offer families information, understanding and support in a compassionate and caring fashion.
