Ultrasound is an imaging procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to obtain a medical image of various body organs. It is a painless and safe procedure.
Ultrasound imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or sonography, involves exposing part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. Ultrasound exams do not use ionizing radiation ( as used in X-rays). Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, they can show the structure and movement of the body’s internal organs, as well as blood flowing through blood vessels.
Ultrasound imaging is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions.
Patients with a scheduled Ultrasound exam should report to the Registration Desk in the front lobby at least 15 minutes before the appointment.
