Preparing for the examination
No preparation is required before a third-trimester ultrasound.
Even during the pandemic, a person of your choice can accompany you during this exam. If you come accompanied, be informed that this person will have to answer the same screening questionnaire as you will have to, and access could be refused.
A medical prescription is mandatory to undergo this test. At Imagix™, third-trimester ultrasounds are interpreted by a gynecologist. Therefore, they are not covered by the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec (RAMQ), which only covers the cost of ultrasounds interpreted by a radiologist.
If your health care professional has prescribed this test for you or you have any questions, feel free to contact us at 1 833 590-2715.
