Salina Women's Clinic doctors recommend that you have two sonograms at 18 and 28 weeks. We offer BabyView 4-D sonograms, utilizing the latest in fetal imaging. Please make sure that you visit with Karen or Jennifer to confirm that your insurance will pay for the sonograms (if they are for routine screening purposes, some insurance companies will not).
