We offer on-site General Ultrasound as well as Limited Vascular Ultrasound.
Ultrasound uses reflected sound waves to produce a picture of organs and other structures inside the body. It doesn’t use X-rays or other kinds of possibly harmful radiation.
Ultrasound is most useful for looking at structures and organs that are solid and uniform or fluid-filled. Mineralized structures or air-filled organs do not show up well on an ultrasound.
A small handheld instrument (a transducer) is passed back and forth over the area of the body being examined. It sends out high-pitched sounds above the range of human hearing that are reflected back to the transducer. A computer analyzes the waves and converts them into a picture displayed on a monitor. Pictures produced by ultrasound are called sonograms, echograms or scans.
