Ultrasound, in conjunction with radiography, is the most common diagnostic imaging procedure used to detect and monitor disease. Ultrasound uses sound waves at different frequencies to image the heart and internal abdominal features, providing excellent detail of soft tissue structures.
Ultrasound offers a non-invasive method for the diagnosis and staging of many diseases. Ultrasound technology does not utilize radiation; therefore, it does not have any harmful or cumulative side effects on the patient. In most cases sedation is not necessary. In addition, we offer outpatient ultrasound as a convenience for our patients.
