Ultrasound

 

Ultrasound uses reflected sound echoes to study and characterize internal structures and tissues. During pregnancy, a growing fetus can be imaged through ultrasound, without causing harm to the growing baby.  Ultrasound is also an excellent non-invasive tool for examining the abdominal and pelvic organs as well as the breast, thyroid and testicles. Our experienced sonographers (specially trained technologists) produce images that can reveal information about the shape, texture, and composition of tumors and cysts. The exam is painless.  Ultrasound can also be utilized when removing a tumor or fluid from the body, allowing the physician to see the area of interest simultaneously with biopsy.
