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:
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).
