Baby Pictures is home to the first 3-Dimensional and 4-Dimensional Ultrasound Imaging Services in Washington State and the country!
Conveniently located in downtown Bellevue, Baby Pictures provides expectant parents (and their family members, if so desired) with state-of-the-art ultrasound imaging in a relaxing and convenient setting.
All Baby Pictures ultrasounds are done by Melissa Dachs (RT, RDMS, RVT), a professional, licensed sonographer with more than 26 years of ultrasound experience and over 33 years of medical experience. She started this business after noticing that insurance companies were only paying for one prenatal ultrasound whereas most people wanted more chances to view their baby and also to receive DVDs, pictures and to find out the gender of their unborn child. They also wanted to bring families into the room with them and many hospitals simply could not accommodate this so she decided to do something about it.
In 1994, Melissa established Baby Pictures Ultrasound with a 2D imaging machine. When the 3D technology came out in 1999, she was the first in the state to get the new machine and even had one of the first production serial numbers on her machine. She came to find out that she was the first person in the country to use the 3D imaging machine for parents to see their unborn baby in a relaxed setting.
In 2002, she upgraded to the new 4D technology which is 3D imaging with real time image updates and again to the Samsung/Medison Accuvix A30 in 2014. Wanting to always take advantage of the latest technology, in 2016, Melissa purchased a brand new Samsung WS80A Elite which is a high resolution premium system that delivers exceptional image clarity with Realistic Vue™ and 5D ultrasound. Sometimes this is referred to as HD or high definition. This new machine allows us to see the baby in the most realistic view ever! Almost as though we had a camera in there watching the little one’s every move!
There are many who have copied her lead, but why not come to the leader? She has turned her passion for ultrasound into a business that brings joy to expectant parents and their families. What could be better than that?
