Ultrasound uses sound waves to obtain an image of organs and tissues. Safe and painless, ultrasound produces precise images of soft tissues (blood vessels, uterus, bladder, etc.) and reveals internal motion such as blood flow.
It can detect diseased or damaged tissues, locate abnormal growths and identify a wide variety of changing conditions, allowing your doctor to make a quick and accurate diagnosis.
Accredited by the American College of Radiology
