Diagnostic ultrasound (sonography) uses high frequency sound waves to visualize anatomy. State-of-the art imaging equipment allows visualization of minute tissue detail and vascular structures with precision for more accurate diagnosis.

Imaging studies range from gall bladder and obstetrics to intricate biopsies that rely on ultrasound guidance, including:

Fetal Ultrasound
Fetal Ultrasounds can detect
anomalies in early pregnancy
  • Breast
  • Liver
  • Renal
  • Thyroid
  • Prostate

Many biopsies, previously restricted to a hospital setting are now readily available as an outpatient procedure because of ultrasound.

Because image acquisition is complex and operator dependent, we rely on our expert team of medical sonographers, all specialty-trained and registered as Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (RDMS).

We are also proud of our Ultrasound Accreditation bestowed by the American College of Radiology for both of our clinical sites, University Hospital and the University Health Care Center.

Our Commitment
To render the highest quality imaging and interventional services for accurate diagnosis, enhanced patient management capabilities, and increased quality of life.
