In 1994, Board-Certified obstetrician Leon Hansen, M.D., recognized that his patients relied a great deal on their medical ultrasound to better understand their pregnancy. He wanted to offer greater choices to expecting women, but a physician's time is short, and such requests are rarely covered by insurance.
As a result, he created an affordable ultrasound service designed to enhance the routine medical ultrasound experience to better serve the patient's needs and concerns. He developed a staff of clinical technicians with highly advanced skills in parent-focused imaging and the newer 3/4D technology, with a unique focus on patient education.
"As physicians, we shouldn't have to choose between providing quality medical care and creating a positive patient experience," says Dr. Hansen. "Ultrasona exists to give providers a resource to better serve their patients without loss of time or resources, and to give patients direct access to more choices in consultation with their provider."
