Radiologists

Our FTC radiologists specialize in obstetrical sonography and MRI. They will perform a complete ultrasound and possibly an echocardiogram and MRI which provides information on the specific details of your baby's birth defect. The radiologist also provides ultrasound guidance during the actual surgery. After fetal surgery, the radiologists will perform further ultrasound and echocardiography studies to monitor your baby's well-being.

Ultrasonography and echocardiography services are provided by the Department of Radiology.
