All of our staff take your patient care and safety very seriously. We follow all Covid-19 and CDC guidelines for safe practices and protocols are in place to sterilize, disinfect and keep our patients and staff safe.

Given the constant changes within our state of Montana and our nation, Picture Perfect Ultrasound will comply with all local, state and federal regulations and safety precautions as they are put into place.
All diagnostic-medical ultrasounds require a physician order (or referral). This is a document your physician will create that says what type of ultrasound you need, the diagnosis (or reason) why you need the ultrasound and other pertinent information we will need to perform your exam. It is required prior to beginning any medical ultrasound that this referral be received.
If you are wishing to submit this ultrasound to your insurance carrier, Medicaid or Medicare, they will also require this physician order to be received prior to processing your claim. Our staff at Picture Perfect Ultrasound will ensure we have received your referral or doctor order prior to having you come to our office.
Some types of ultrasounds do require a prep or possibly fasting. You will be notified by our office on whether or not your particular exam ordered requires this special instruction or not. Our staff will call you a day prior to your appointment to remind you of any prep, your appointment time and any pertinent instructions.
What To Bring To Your Appointment:
Insurance Cards (Private Insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, IHS or other) If you have primary and secondary insurances, please bring both cards with you.
Referral or Physician Order (if you are hand carrying it)
If the patient is under 18, they will need to be accompanied by a parent or supervising adult for paperwork and processing.
You will fill out paperwork once you arrive at our office but in the event you need to complete paperwork early, here are the necessary forms to fill out for diagnostic-medical ultrasounds.
How It Works...
Our staff here at Picture Perfect Ultrasound are dedicated to take great care of you! You and your referring provider can have confidence that you are receiving a quality ultrasound exam.
All of our Sonographers (Ultrasound Specialists) are highly trained and experienced in all aspects of Ultrasound. Picture Perfect Ultrasound only employs ARDMS Credentialed Sonographers and each are continually advancing their knowledge and expertise with continuing education.
Every patient is treated with respect and we strive to make each person comfortable with the type of exam they are having by explaining what to expect prior to beginning.
Your ultrasound will be performed by a licensed, credentialed Sonographer and then your images, history and paperwork will be sent to an interpreting physician, called a Radiologist. A Radiologist is a licensed physician who specializes in reviewing and interpreting Ultrasound, MRI, CT Scan, X-rays and more.
The physician group of Radiologists that Picture Perfect Ultrasound uses is called ERA (Eastern Radiological Associates). One of these physicians will interpret your ultrasound and this report will go two places: It will be kept in your patient chart at Picture Perfect Ultrasound but it will also immediately go to your referring physician. Your doctor or provider, will then have the ultrasound images and final report to review and go over with you as a patient.
Picture Perfect Ultrasound will not disclose you results with you as a patient until you have had the opportunity to meet with your physician. If your exam is a positive alert or has a concerning finding, we will make a phone call to speak with your physician prior to you leaving. In this instance, a preliminary report is required.
Do you have Insurance or a type of coverage that we can process for you?
At your ultrasound appointment, we will ask if you have insurance or any other type of coverage. Our front desk staff will ask for that information and take a copy of those insurance or coverage cards.
