Ultrasound imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or sonography, is a method of obtaining images from inside the human body through the use of high-frequency sound waves. The reflected sound wave echoes are recorded and displayed as a real-time visual image. No ionizing radiation (x-ray) is involved in ultrasound imaging.
Each test has different preparations so contact facility prior to testing to clarify preparation needs.
Dont be Surprised!
Most ultrasound examinations are painless, fast and easy. Ultrasound examinations usually take less than 30 minutes. You will lie on your back on an examining table. The technologist will apply warm gel on your skin and press the transducer firmly against your body, moving it until the desired images are captured.
We Will Take Care of The Rest!
You will be free to leave the facility and resume normal activities as your health permits. A radiologist reads your MRI, and the results are reported directly back to your doctor.
What is it?
Ultrasound is a useful way of examining many of the body’s internal organs, including but not limited to the heart, liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, kidneys and bladder. Because ultrasound images are captured in real time, they can show movement of internal tissues and organs and enable physicians to see blood flow and heart valve functions.
Obstetric ultrasound refers to the specialized use of sound waves to visualize and thus determine the condition of a pregnant woman and her embryo or fetus. The ultrasound can also estimate the age of the pregnancy, diagnose congenital abnormalities, determine multiple pregnancies, evaluate the position of the placenta and determine the amount of amniotic fluid around the fetus.
