Ultrasound is a safe, versatile, and fast diagnostic imaging exam that uses high frequency sound waves transmitted through a transducer (probe). This exam can look at the structures of your body for abnormalities that could be associated with your symptoms or physical condition, without the use of radiation or contrast dye.
It can help assess the function of tendons and ligaments, evaluate joint spaces for fluid or inflammation, and check on the growth and well-being of your baby.

Breast ultrasounds are diagnostic imaging exams to investigate symptoms, like pain or lumps, or to examine a specific area of concern. They may also be recommended if you have high breast density.
We offer a range of ultrasounds that assess such things as the function and structure of abdominal and pelvic organs, the contents of lumps beneath the skin, and the size and shape of your thyroid.
Musculoskeletal ultrasounds assess the tendons and ligaments that hold the muscles and bones in alignment. They also evaluate the joint spaces for fluid or inflammation that may limit joint movement.
Obstetrical ultrasounds determine the presence of an embryo, examine your fetus, look at the position of the placenta, and check on the growth and well-being of your baby.
Vascular ultrasounds assess the blood vessels of the body. They may be recommended to look for blood clots and evaluate the blood flow to the brain.
