Ultrasound

This is a noninvasive imaging procedure used to examine organs and major vessels. Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves that reflect off of a body structure to form an image. The echoes from the sound waves give information regarding size, distance and uniformity of the organ. There is no radiation exposure with ultrasound. Our ultrasound staff maintains competency through yearly continuing education, thus ensuring current techniques and updates in their profession. An ultrasound is painless and the addition of a gel warmer has made the exam even more comfortable.Ultrasound works closely with Mammography to evaluate masses located within the breast. Ultrasound can help determine if the mass is solid or cystic. This allows the patient and their physician to make better choices on how to manage their care.
