Ultrasound

Ultrasound

An ultrasound study, also called a sonogram, is a medical test that is painless and usually noninvasive. One of the safest medical tests available today; ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves and a computer to create images of blood vessels, tissues, and organs. A sonogram is used to view internal organs as they function and to assess blood flow through various vessels. This type of imaging study is used to evaluate the following:

  • Abdomen (gallbladder, liver, pancreas, kidneys and spleen)
  • Aorta
  • Breast, breast biopsy, cyst aspiration and hookwire guidance
  • Carotid artery
  • DVT (deep vein of the extremities)
  • Hysterosonography
  • Pelvis (uterus and ovaries)
  • Pregnancy (fetus)
  • Prostate and prostate biopsy
  • Scrotum (testicles)
  • Thyroid
