Ultrasound is an imaging procedure that uses high frequency sound waves to obtain a medical image of various organs of the body. 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 who have a scheduled Ultrasound exam should report to the Registration Desk in the front lobby at least 15 minutes before the appointment. Our staff will give the utmost attention to maintaining your privacy during the procedure.
