Ultrasound

Ultrasounds use sound waves to capture images that examine organs and structures inside the body. These tests can be performed to find abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, breast, arteries and veins.
In addition, ultrasounds:

• Excel at monitoring pregnancy and infant development

• Produce images of soft tissue and internal organs to diagnose causes of swelling, infection and pain

• Are non-invasive imaging procedures with no exposure to radiation


Results are provided to your doctor typically within 48 hours of your visit. Studies are read by a board-certified radiologist with North Oaks Imaging Associates, and are available to your doctor in a CD format upon request.
