What would you do if you went to a 3D ultrasound session hoping to get pictures of your unborn baby to find that the pictures you were given were not of your kid?
More than a dozen women in the GTA are claiming they were given apparently identical 3D images after their ultrasound sessions at a Pickering, Ont. prenatal imaging clinic.
The allegedly identical images came to light after one woman posted a picture from her 3D ultrasound to a Facebook group for expectant mothers, and asked others to post theirs too. Turns out the image which appears identical also appears on the company’s website.
The clinic in question, meanwhile, says it suspects a computer virus is behind the replica images.
It’s important to know that while these clinics provide a service, they do NOT provide a medical purpose! They are also very costly. These sessions initially cost around $160.00, but you can buy packages for $200 or more…
The majority of Doctors and The Sonography Canada, The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada and the Canadian Association of Radiologists are not proponents of 3D images as it’s not medically necessary.
