Baby's First Ultrasound
This review is for the Gender PackageNOT WORTH IT!First, we had to wait 45 minutes in the stuffy waiting room full of flies. When they finally got to us they didn't even do the 3D ultrasound! No one told us it was not included in our package until AFTER we were done! They even pointed out a picture of the 3d ultrasound behind the reception desk to tell us what to expect. And then they didn't do it! Just the regular 2d black and white one like the doctor does (but less clear). But the worst part was that they didn't give us one decent picture! We got a disk with 18 pictures but they were all TERRIBLE! One you could kinda see a hand, some of a leg, a couple of the back of the head; not one single picture of anything that looked like a baby. Nothing we could frame or share with anyone. Useless.The only reason I'm giving it 2 stars instead of one is that they did tell us the gender so I guess that's worth something. If I had known what it was like I would have waited the 4 more weeks for my doctor to tell us.Basically, don't expect a nice experience or any keepsakes; if you want to pay $59 to know the gender a couple weeks early, go for it. That's all you'll get.

Baby's First Ultrasound
I bought the $99 package and it wasn't worth it. They printed out the worst unfocused pictures.Also they're only 3 by 5 and the we're sloppily cut out. Such bad picks I won't even be using them. Also used the worst pictures for the buttons and key chains. On the picture dvd most of the pics were multiples of the same pic. Like 4 and 5 photos that were the same. And the 25 min dvd was missing 7 minutes. You pay extra for the longer sessions. :( and the albumn was a cheap dollar tree thing. Also the babies heart beat was not on the dvd. I should of gotten a cheaper package. I'm only 13 weeks so I knew the 3ds might not be that good but with my last two I went at 11 weeks and they were much clearer. The tech also was kind of insulting to me. She said. No one ever gets them this early. I don't see why you would want it done. I wanted it done because I had wonderful experience s with my other children and I wasnt even as far along with them. But I am disappointed that the extras were crap because they used the worst pictures and I didn't get as long of DVD as I should have. Next time I will go to another place.

I had an MRI on my back last week. It was so easy and comfortable. I am claustrophobic and this MRI was completely open and I never felt closed in. I actually watched TV. The whole staff was nice and friendly, no issues. My report was sent to my doc as well as the images the next day. I would definitely recommend this place.

Brain MRI yesterday. It was so much better than the tube if you have claustrophobic issues! The staff was terrific. Will post more about the time to receive results and quality of films after results are received, but at this point it has been far and above better experience than other MRI's!!
Tips & Advices
Radiological exams can be either diagnostic or interventional. Diagnostic exams are intended to detect the presence of a certain condition, like a bone fracture or a tumor inside the body. Interventional radiology uses imaging techniques to assist in treating a condition, usually through surgery, but the procedure itself is not intended to have a direct impact on the outcome of the disease.
The exact process of an exam will vary depending on the specific type of imaging procedure and the goal of the test. Patients will usually be situated near a machine that will direct the appropriate form of energy to the part of the body being examined. Technicians help patients perform the necessary steps to complete the process.
Most imaging exams do not have any immediate side effects. The most important side effect of many forms of radiology is the exposure to small doses of radiation. In almost all cases, a single exam will deliver a radiation dose that is too low to have any effect, but over repeated exposure, the risk of developing cancer from this radiation increases. Radiologists take several precautions to limit exposure on behalf of patients as well as themselves and their staff.
Results from an imaging procedure may be available almost instantly (as with X-rays and ultrasound), or might take a few minutes to develop. However, in some cases it will take a radiologist additional time to analyze and report on the images collected, so results may be delayed by a few hours or days.
Radiologists can perform a variety of imaging procedures depending on their specialty. Common examples include:
  • X-rays.
  • Computed tomography (CT scans).
  • Ultrasound.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
  • Positron emission tomography (PET).
  • Interventional radiology: Using specialized imaging techniques to assist with surgery, either immediately before or in the process of a surgical procedure.
