Ultrasound

An ultrasound examination involves exposing your body part to high-frequency or “ultrasound” waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body.
  • Safe and painless procedure.
  • Helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions.
  • Used as a real-time guide during needle biopsies, drainage procedures, catheter placement, percutaneous targeted injections and radio frequency ablation.
Routine abdominal ultrasound studies are mainly for solid organs and fluid filled structures such as the gallbladder and urinary bladder. Gas containing structures such as the stomach and intestinal tract are not included.
