Important Things to Know About Ultrasound

Ultrasound is a safe, radiation-free imaging method that shows a range of body tissues. Ultrasound systems use high-frequency sound waves to create images that help doctors evaluate tissues. Ultrasound can be used to evaluate areas such as blood vessels in the neck, abdomen and legs as well as monitor fetal development.

During the ultrasound exam, a technologist applies a warm gel and moves a wand-like transducer across the your skin. Scan times are typically less than 60 minutes.

Non-Invasive Vascular Ultrasound

By transmitting high-frequency sound waves from devices placed on your skin and reading their echoes, ultrasound created images without invasive procedures or the use of X-rays. Because the images are captured in real time, vascular ultrasound can provide a picture of the flow of blood within your blood vessels.

Our non-invasive vascular diagnostic services include Carotid Doppler Imaging and LE Venous.
