Our center is equipped with one of the latest ultrasounds on the market for ultrasonic testing and ultrasound scan. We are able to perform a variety of ultrasound scans and ultrasound tests such as ultrasound scans of the thyroid, carotid arteries , aorta, heart, abdomen, kidneys, gallbladder, liver, spleen, pancreas, testes, breasts, prostate, baby, veins and more. We also perform IMT measurements (Intima media thickness measurement of the carotid artery, a preview of plaque buildup in the coronary arteries) as well as perform screening ultrasound of the different organs in the body. Our screening ultrasound testing as well as diagnostic ultrasound testing is performed for early diagnosis of cancer and heart disease as well as diagnosing and evaluating masses and other abnormalities.
A experienced ultrasound technician performs all ultrasounds in the office and the images are then sent to an experienced radiologist to read.
What is An Ultrasound?
An ultrasound scan, which is also commonly known as a diagnostic sonography, sonogram and ultrasonography, is an apparatus that uses high frequency sound waves to generate an image of a particular fragment within the body. Precise sites for an ultrasound exam would be blood vessels, the heart, liver, prostate, pelvis, breast, pancreas, testes, thyroid, gallbladder, carotids, joints, muscles, kidneys, testicles, aorta, fetus and tendons to document several dimensions of its structure and any neurotic abrasions with real time tomographic images. Ultrasound is used to generate images of the human body for at least 50 years and has become one of the most widely used diagnostic tools in modern medicine. Research has shown that sound waves are safer to use than radiation. For instance, to check the fetus in the womb effectively while simultaneously protecting the fetus, an obstetric ultrasound exam is habitually used.
