Ultrasound

Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves that are converted into diagnostic information using a hand-held transducer passed over an imaged area. The resulting ultrasound is the reflection of the sound waves as they collide with the anatomy being studied.

Because high-frequency sound waves cannot penetrate bone or air, they are especially useful in imaging soft tissues and fluid filled spaces. Ultrasound is good at non-invasively imaging a number of soft tissue organs without x-rays.

These include:

  • Heart
  • Pelvis and reproductive organs
  • Kidneys, liver, pancreas, gall bladder
  • Breast
  • Thyroid
  • Blood Vessels
