Ultrasounds can be important diagnostic tools to diagnose various conditions. We utilize a Board Certified Specialist who visits our clinic on Wednesdays.
Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves that are above the range of human hearing to create an image of organs within the body. Sound waves are reflected off internal body structures and back to the ultrasound probe. The reflected sound waves are analyzed by computer and turned into pictures than can be analyzed immediately and offer a diagnostic capability not available from other forms of imaging. It is a non-invasive procedure with very little patient risk or disconfort.
