Providing Quality Diagnostic Services
Specializing in Expectant Families

About Us

Thank you for considering Pacific  Coast Ultrasound for all your ultrasound needs. These highly qualified professionals are pleased to provide compassionate care, expert diagnostics, peace of mind, and a miracle experience:

Darlene Ginnett, RDMS

My name is Darlene Ginnett.  I have been an ARDMS ultrasonographer for 13 years. I am fortunate to have received my ultrasound education at one of the few accredited ultrasound programs in southern California after receiving my college degree in radiology sciences. I am proud to hold specialty certifications in GYN/OB, Abdomen and Small Parts. I have worked with some of finest radiologists, obstetricians and surgeons at high volume medical and imaging centers. I had the opportunity to educate and supervise student interns as Clinical Coordinator of a local ultrasound college. My interest in 3D technology began while training as sales consultant and application specialist for Image Quest Ultrasound, but my passion has always been performing OB ultrasounds. I am fulfilled and rewarded when I can spend quality time with expecting families, showing and telling the miracle of their baby’s development. We utilize the highest 4D imaging technology from GE Medical Systems. To be able to provide this in our beautiful comfortable theatre complete with surround sound and 100” screen is an honor for me.  The final important qualification I can assure you of is our full medical compliance.  Every study performed whether diagnostic or elective is reviewed by our board certified radiologists and a report is sent to your doctor.  You will make choices and decisions for many years for you and your child. Expect the best from the start.

Emma Anton, RDMS, RVT

We are proud to welcome Emma to our staff as Vascular Consultant and expert sonographer. Emma brings over 14 years of highly respected experience in both clinical practice and as a quality educator at Cypress College for the accredited Sonography program. Emma is both an ARDMS and a Registered Vascular Technologist. Her registered certifications include OB/GYN, Abdominal/Small parts, and the additional specialty of Breast ultrasound. Emma’s professional experience is extraordinary: high risk level II OB, infertility studies, intraoperative ultrasound guidance, diagnostic and interventional breast ultrasound, diagnostic and interventional vascular procedures.  She is passionate to bring her years of experience into our family focused center.  Her caring and entertaining narration will add wonder to your miracle experience.

Our Supervising Physician and Interpreting Radiologist…

Diagnostic ultrasound examinations are supervised and interpreted by our radiologist, Roy Vaid, M.D., Ph.D. 

Dr. Vaid went to medical school at New York Medical College and obtained a Ph.D. in physiology from Oxford University before attending his radiology residency at the University of California, San Francisco. 

At UCSF, Dr. Vaid trained in obstetric and gynecologic ultrasound under the tutelage of many of the leading world experts in the field. These include Dr. Roy Filly, one of the founders of the field of obstetric ultrasound itself, who in the course of his thirty-five years of obstetric ultrasound practice has published over 400 ultrasound-related academic manuscripts, as well as Dr. Peter Callen, author of "Ultrasonography in Obstetrics and Gynecology", one of the primary textbooks of the field which is now in its critically acclaimed fourth edition. 

Dr. Vaid continues to be heavily involved in academic medical research, having published twenty-two first author journal articles and first-author academic meeting presentations, as well as having participated in numerous other co-authored publications and presentations. His numerous academic awards and honors include an NIH Research Award Fellowship, the Oxford University Beaconsfield Prize for outstanding Physiologic Sciences research, the British Overseas Scholarship award, and others.

"Doctors have discovered that, for parents-to-be, the scans also play a beneficial role in developing emotional bonds. Research has shown that seeing the face and expression of the developing fetus while it's still inside the womb can be an intense bonding experience. It can provide an important boost to the baby's development once it's born and also to the long-term relationship between the child and [his or] her parents."
