Shaping tomorrow's health care with you.

EchoFemme

Our ultrasound center offers prenatal ultrasound and diagnostic services for women. We strive to deliver comprehensive care at all times, made possible by our highly specialized and competent multidisciplinary team alongside state-of-the art medical facilities and technology.

We perform a wide range of pregnancy ultrasound scans, allowing us to see your baby in your uterus and check how well your pregnancy is progressing while you can learn about your baby.

During a gynecological examination, we use ultrasound for a detailed observation of anatomical structures, which helps us to diagnose some medical conditions.
