(Also referred to as Sonography or Sonogram)

Ultrasound is a common diagnostic procedure. High-frequency sound waves are used to "echo," or bounce, off the body to create a picture. For this exam, the sonographer applies a special gel to the skin, and a wand-like instrument (called a transducer) is positioned over it. Sound waves are generated and reflected back to the transducer as electric impulses, which produce an image on a computer screen. A radiologist will review the images and the sonographer's findings to render a report, which will be sent to your physician.

Types of Ultrasound Exams include:

  • Pelvic/Transvaginal
  • Abdominal
  • Obstetrical/Nuchal Translucency Screening
  • Small Parts (thyroid, scrotal)
  • Breast
  • Vascular
  • Pediatric Imaging
  • Biopsy & Drainage Procedures
  • Musculoskeletal
