Many non-medical scanning centres report having the most up to date technology. At Sneak Peek Ultrasounds we have invested in the highest quality, top of the range GE Voluson HD Live scanner to provide you with superior quality images. In fact, the GE Voluson was voted as the # 1 Ultrasound Machine in 2018.
It is important when choosing the right centre to know that some have HD live images/pictures on their website but do not have the technology to produce them! HD live is extraordinary technology that produce amazingly realistic images of your baby’s features. Click here to see what images to expect from Sneak Peek Ultrasounds.
Additionally, for yours and your baby's safety, professional guidelines recommend that all ultrasound equipment should be no older than 5 years old. Sneak Peeks GE Voluson was purchased in June 2017.
Older equipment may require high power and longer ultrasound exposure for your baby to achieve the desired image quality, which is not recommended.
To maintain ultrasound scanning machines in optimal condition so that they use the lowest possible power (therefore maintaining your babies safety), to produce amazing images of your baby it is important that they are serviced every year.
Sneak Peek's machines and probes are serviced as a minimum, on a yearly basis.
At Sneak Peek we only use a state of the art high level disinfecting unit to disinfect the scanning probes. For more information on what this means for you have a look at the Your Baby Safety page.
When you call to book your appointment ask:
1. How old are the scanning machines that are being used? Your baby’s safety is the utmost importance.
2. Do they use an approved machine to disinfect their scanning probes?
