Ultrasound

What is an Ultrasound?

Sound waves are focused on an area of the body. As they bounce back to a handheld receiver, they produce images of what is inside your body. An ultrasound is painless and, depending on the type of exam, may take 15-45 minutes.

  • Vascular: How are your blood vessels working? An ultrasound can identify if there are any blockages or impairments that impede the flow of blood throughout the body.
  • Obstetrical: How well is your baby developing in the womb? Regular obstetrical ultrasounds alert the doctors to any possible issues and make sure that your baby is growing normally.
  • Orthopedic: Are your bones, ligaments and muscles interacting correctly? If you experience pain during movement, an orthopedic ultrasound may help diagnose the problem.
