CURE to appear on June 19th episode of Bravo's "Pregnant in Heels"

Local ultrasound school helps parents bond with unborn child using advanced 3D/4D ultrasound technology

NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y., June 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The Center for Ultrasound Research & Education (CURE), based in New Rochelle, will be featured in the sixth episode (airs June 19, 2012) of Bravo's "Pregnant in Heels."


The school was contacted by Bravo to help a Soho mother-to-be bond with her unborn child. 

CURE conducted a 3D/4D ultrasound so the mother could see the baby's face in a three dimensional plane.  Doppler ultrasound was also used so the mother could hear the heartbeat of her seven-month old fetus in an effort to inspire maternal fetal bonding. The baby's father, who was experiencing sympathy pains, was also given an ultrasound allowing both parents the opportunity to increase bonding.

"It's very rewarding to know that we can help expectant moms bond with their unborn children through safe ultrasound technology," said Karen Nussbaumer, president and founder of CURE.   "We were happy to be a part of this program and to showcase the use of 3D ultrasound as well as Doppler in these situations.  While maternal fetal bonding occurs in many women, the bonding process is not always natural and can be significantly increased with these advanced ultrasound technologies."

3D ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves and sophisticated computer programming to create high resolution images from inside the body. Typically done when the fetus is 24-32 weeks old, sound waves are sent through the mother's abdomen from several angles. The returning echoes are turned into a static three dimensional image of the fetus.

4D imaging is identical to 3D imaging with the exception that fetal movements can be seen in real time, rather than delayed time from 3D imaging.

CURE is a licensed ultrasound school located in New Rochelle, NY. CURE offers 12, 18 and 24 month programs in diagnostic medical sonography, vascular technology and echocardiography.  Students benefit from a 1:12 teacher-student ratio and a variety of in depth, hands on training, in-house clinical experiences at CURE's own clinic, Cure Diagnostics, as well as externships to several regional hospitals and medical facilities. CURE is licensed by the New York State Education Department and is supervised by the Bureau of Proprietary School Supervision.
