TREAT PATIENTS WITH UNSURPASSED AND COMPASSIONATE CARE WHILE PROVIDING EXPERT ULTRASOUND IMAGING SERVICES
WHAT SETS US APART
We are passionate about what we do. We have been servicing San Diego's physicians since 1997 and are located in a charming, 100 year old craftsman home to provide a comfortable and unique experience for all our clients. We were one of the first in San Diego to offer 4D imaging, starting in 2000 as XDI Ultrasound. Our sonographers are registered (RDMS) or registry eligible by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS), NTQR Certified, have a combined experience of over 40,000 ultrasounds and over 25 years experience.
SERGIO E HERNANDEZ, RDMS, BS, NTQR CEO/ Chief Sonographer, opened XDI Ultrasound / Sonohealth in 1997 near the neighborhood Medical Mall in Mira Mesa, moved to the UTC area, and now at the current location in University Heights. A registered sonographer since 1993, Sergio holds two speciality certifications in Obstetrics / Gynecology and Abdomen / Superficial Structures Ultrasound. In 1993, Sergio was presented with a “Certificate of Appreciation” from the Air Force Human Systems Center for performing over 1,000 Testicular Sonograms (yes, this is true) for a research project at Scripps Green Hospital. He is certified in Nuchal Translucency Screening since 2008 and Nasal Bone Screening in 2010. Sergio has taught groups of student midwives from the Nizhoni Institute of Midwifery on the Benefits of Ultrasound During Pregnancy. A San Diego native, Sergio graduated from UCSD with a degree in Biochemistry / Cell Biology. His professional membership affiliations include the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers and the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine.
Sergio embraces his nerdy side and loves anything science based. From books, museums, to documentaries, he loves keeping up with the latest in biology, astrophysics and, of course, ultrasound. He enjoys obscure music, to which his wife and two children describe as “music that only 10 people on the planet enjoy”, and has started hardcore-punk band Amenity and Latin-funksters B-Side Players in his youth.
