Did you know that an ultrasound scan can be used to detect the onset of many common diseases?

An ultrasound scan uses high frequency sound waves that reflect off body structures to generate an image of muscles, tendons, or organs. When most people think of ultrasound scans, they visualize images of unborn babies. Although this is a popular and important use of ultrasound, there are many more significant uses for this diagnostic tool. Ultrasounds can be used to detect cancer, infection, and problems in the heart, liver, and kidney. If the ultrasound is done early enough, it can prevent further disease progression. In addition to being quick and reliable, ultrasounds are also very safe. This is why an ultrasound is commonly used to detect a fetus in the mother’s womb. If you are having abnormal pain, swelling of the feet or notice a strange lump, it may be time for an ultrasound! At My Concierge MD, we use the latest in ultrasound technology. We also offer screening ultrasound testing such as Intima Media Thickness (IMT) measurements to detect the presence of atherosclerotic disease as well as 2D echo of the heart and more.
