Comprehensive Ultrasound Services

An ultrasound is a radiation-free imaging procedure that uses sound waves to create images of the body’s internal structures on a nearby monitor.

Though best known for its use during pregnancy, an ultrasound can be used to perform many diagnostic procedures, such as:

  • Gallbladder disease diagnosis
  • Cardiovascular health assessment
  • Image-guided biopsies
  • Joint inflammation assessment
  • Metabolic bone disease examination
  • Assessing the health of the thyroid and parathyroid glands

Ultrasounds are painless, noninvasive procedures. Before the test, a doctor or nurse will rub a gel over the area that is to be examined. A wand attached to an electronic device will then be rubbed over this area. This wand releases sound waves, which echo into the body and feedback into the machine which creates images of the body’s insides based on the information it receives.
