- Biophysical profiles
- 4-D Ultrasounds - for established patients

If you are concerned that you are high-risk, the following is offered at the time of your consultation:
- Evaluation of your baby’s condition
- Explanation of the identified disorder and discussion of possible therapy
- If intervention is necessary, a review of the risks will be considered and discussed in detail

The Regional Perinatal Center also offers the only certified genetic counselor in the Permian Basin to support expectant women from preconception planning throughout their pregnancies. Our genetic counselor helps both healthcare providers and patients understand the risks associated with birth defects, ultrasound findings, and other hereditary disorders. During a genetic counseling session, genetic information and testing analysis is personalized through a review of family and medical history and medical information is explained in a manner in which patients can make it meaningful for their lives. Information and support are provided throughout the decision-making, testing and result process.
