Advanced Fetal Imaging
The mission of Arizona Fetal Care Network is to provide personalized coordinated care, planning and fetal diagnostics that offers entry to long term care provided by pediatric sub-specialists. We begin with the diagnosis of a complicated prenatal fetal condition and extend our expertise throughout childhood and adolescence by developing a plan that will last 18 years or more. Advanced fetal imaging plays a key role in our ability to better prepare families and providers for what to expect during the pregnancy, at the time of delivery and beyond.
Our fetal imaging services have grown quickly. We have added technically advanced diagnostic imaging services to complement those offered in community MFM and OB offices. The combined expertise of four pediatric radiologists specializing in fetal diagnostics offers personalized and highly accurate diagnostics. We offer Fetal MRI services through both 1.5 and 3T magnets, Fetal Cardiac MRI, a dedicated 3D lab and expertise in high-level ultrasound. Our relationship with Phillips allows us access to diagnostic equipment that has never been used before.
Once a diagnosis has been established for the baby, the family can be set up to see one or more of our nationally renowned pediatric experts at a location close to home. In partnership with OB/MFMs and a multidisciplinary care team, a plan will be created for babies prior to delivery. We also connect families to additional community/support resources that will help during pregnancy and beyond.
