Diagnostic Medical Sonography (Ultrasound)

Ultrasound is a diagnostic medical exam that may be ordered by a physician to aid in the evaluation of a patient. Sound waves that are above human hearing levels are transmitted into the patient's body. The test is normally painless, although a bit of pressure will be exerted on the problem area, along with some gel applied to the skin.

Some of the common types of sonograms are:

  • Pelvic: to evaluate the uterus, ovaries, bladder and prostate
  • Abdomen: to evaluate the kidneys, liver, gallbladder spleen and pancreas
  • Obstetrical: to evaluate pregnancy and the fetus
  • Thyroid, Breast, and Testicular exams 
  • Arteries and Veins throughout the body
