Ultrasound: By Appointment Only
Ultrasound technology is similar to sonar used by boats and submarines. Safe and effective ultrasound, also known as sonography, is a procedure in which high-frequency sound waves are bounced off internal tissues and organs, producing reflected waves. These waves, or echoes, are then analyzed by a sophisticated computer to create real-time, multi-dimensional images.
General Ultrasound can detect diseases or damaged tissue, locate abnormal growths, and identify a wide range of conditions. Ultrasounds are also performed routinely during pregnancy, helping physicians make quick and accurate diagnoses.
Vascular ultrasound is a specific type of ultrasound procedure which provides pictures of the body's veins and arteries. The Ultrasound unit uses the Doppler Effect to analyze the speed and direction of blood flow. It can detect abnormal areas, restrictions (like clots or plaque), congenital vascular malformations, as well as map out where the blood vessels are going.
