Fetal cardiology telemedicine
In the case of our Fetal Cardiology Telemedicine Program, the local obstetric team will perform the fetal echocardiogram scan, live streaming the scan to our expert fetal cardiologist at the Anschutz Medical Campus in a live video conference.
Telemedicine allows for real-time two-way communication. Our fetal cardiologist can see, evaluate and interpret the image in real time, and can talk to you, direct the local sonographer and ask for immediate additional scans if something requires further evaluation.
Maternal fetal medicine telemedicine
For fetal abnormalities, the local perinatal sonographer, specially trained in performing high-risk pregnancy ultrasounds, will perform your ultrasound. This ultrasound is live streamed to our expert MFM specialist at Anschutz Medical Campus. We then video conference with you to discuss the findings and care plan.
If an abnormality is identified, we may connect you with other resources and services at our fetal care center.
Why choose Children's Colorado for maternal and fetal telemedicine?
In addition to saving time and money, our patients and their babies benefit from faster diagnosis, easy access to care and better treatment plans and outcomes.
Whether you live in Denver, the Front Range or on the Western Slope, or even across the country, you have access to the fetal cardiac expertise and maternal fetal care that you and your baby need.
Coordinated care for mothers and high-risk babies
Geographic barriers aren't the only obstacles we break down; we offer concierge care services and dedicated care coordinators to handle the logistics.
If your baby's condition necessitates coming to our center for treatment or delivery, we don't let anything get in our way of getting you here. Our coordinators can book your travel and accommodation, schedule your appointments and guide your family through the entire process.

And should you need to undergo a fetal intervention, open fetal surgery or intervention at delivery, our care coordinators can facilitate a seamless transition from your hometown to our Maternal Fetal Care Unit (MFCU).
Quick access to high-quality fetal care
Our Maternal Fetal Telemedicine Program allows expectant mothers with a suspected fetal condition to receive an evaluation and confirmed diagnosis right away.
This matters greatly, as early intervention in these high-risk pregnancies could help halt the progression of your child's disease or prevent other complications from developing. Learn more about the 24/7 world-class, compassionate care provided at our Maternal Fetal Medicine Program.
“This technology allowed my husband to be by my side during my appointments, and the doctor and sonographer were great. I’m so happy we could get everything done in Grand Junction. I highly recommended receiving care via telemedicine.”
