In-office labs & ultrasounds
Ultrsounds and lab tests are often important parts of gynecologic and obstetric treatment plans. Whether your provider is investigating a gynecologic concern or checking on the development of a growing baby, these diagnostic tools can be very helpful in getting an accurate diagnosis so needed treatment can begin with delay.
Blood and urine tests can identify infections and monitor underlying health conditions. We can collect both blood and urine lab specimens from patients at any of our offices. Every effort will be made to complete any necessary collections during your regular appointment so a separate visit is not necessary.
As a rule, we only inform patients about abnormal lab test results.
Please note: You might receive a bill for any needed lab work separate from the bill for your office visit.
Ultrasounds are available at all Novant Health Huntersville OB/GYN locations. We perform routine gynecologic and obstetric ultrasounds in our office. For some specialized ultrasounds, such as detailed anatomy scans during pregnancy, you will be referred to Novant Health Maternal Fetal Medicine or another specialized provider.
Our providers regularly perform sonohysterography to help evaluate gynecological problems such as heavy or abnormal uterine bleeding. If an ultrasound is recommended as part of your gynecologic care, every effort will be made to schedule that service at the same time as your regular appointment.
