Ultrasound Imaging

Ultrasound, also called sonography, is the use of high frequency sound waves and a computer to create images of blood vessels, tissue and organs. Ultrasound is used to view internal organs as they function and to assess blood flow through the vessels. Ultrasound is used to examine the abdomen, breast, pelvis, prostate, scrotum, thyroid and parathyroid. Ultrasound is also used to evaluate the development of the fetus.

  • Vascular Ultrasound-- examine the arteries and veins for blood flow and plaque.
  • Abdominal Ultrasound-- to detect any abnormalities of the organs ( i.e. kidneys, liver, pancreas, spleen and gallbladder) such as gallstones or tumors.
  • Renal Ultrasound-- to examine the kidneys and urinary tract.
  • Obstetrical Ultrasound-- to monitor the developement of the fetus.
  • Pelvic Ultrasound-- to find the cause of pelvic pain or other abnormalities, such as an ectopic pregnancy in women, or to detect tumors and masses.
  • Breast Ultrasound-- to examine masses in the breast tissue.
  • Thyroid Ultrasound-- to detect masses and other abnormalities.
  • Scrotal Ultrasound-- to check the testicles and other structures in the scrotum for abnormalities.
