A LESS-INVASIVE LOOK

Ultrasounds: Their purposes are many, and their usage is vital to the diagnosis of numerous concerns. Ultrasounds are classified into many categories, all locating the sources of various conditions and providing a closer look at what’s causing symptoms.

General Ultrasound  - Utilizing sound waves, ultrasound produces photos of the body’s internal structure. The process begins with a gel being applied to the skin, allowing for sound waves from the probe to be transmitted through the body. The sound waves that are transmitted bounce off organs, which are received by a computer to create an image, unlike x-rays, which use radiation exposure to create images.

Obstetrical Ultrasound - Obstetrical ultrasound is utilized for pregnant women looking for information related to their embryo/fetus, such as the age and position of the fetus, any congenital abnormalities, multiple pregnancies, fetal growth, and well-being, etc.

3D Ultrasound – A medical ultrasound technique that is commonly used in obstetric ultrasonography (during pregnancy); this non-invasive procedure provides three-dimensional images of the fetus. It is often referred to as a keepsake ultrasound, due to the dynamic image it provides of the fetus in the womb. Beyond the detailed image the scan provides, this procedure can also be used to determine the sex of the fetus earlier than a traditional 2D scan. The cost of a 3D ultrasound is comparable to that of a 2D scan.

Abdominal Ultrasound - Abdominal ultrasound is utilized for patients looking for analysis and diagnosis of disease of the kidneys, gallbladder, pancreas, liver, spleen, and abdominal aorta. Conditions that can be diagnosed by an abdominal ultrasound include abnormal functionality, enlarged organs, stones in the kidney or gallbladder, and aneurysm.

Pelvic Ultrasound - Pelvic ultrasound is utilized for patients looking for analysis and diagnosis of conditions related to female pelvic organs, including the vagina, cervix, uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes. There are two methods in which pelvic ultrasound: Transabdominal, through the skin, and transvaginal, which is done through the vagina.

Musculoskeletal Ultrasound - Musculoskeletal ultrasound is utilized for patients looking for analysis and diagnosis of disease of the muscles, ligaments, joints, soft tissues, and tendons, as well as for conditions such as ganglion cysts, or hernias. This ultrasound is able to highlight the blood flow n internal organs.

Vascular Ultrasound - Vascular ultrasound is utilized for patients looking for analysis and diagnosis of disease of the body’s veins and arteries. Conditions that can be diagnosed from vascular ultrasound include, but are not limited to clot blockages, vessel narrowing, tumors, and congenital vascular malformations.
