Ultrasound / ECHO

Ultrasound (sonography) is a safe, painless and cost effective test that uses high frequency sound waves to view organs, tissues or blood flow inside the body. The sound waves that are produced during an ultrasound cannot be heard or felt. Both still and moving real-time images can be captured during an ultrasound.

 

There are no risks from an ultrasound scan. It is non-invasive and does not expose you to any radiation. Therefore, the scan can be repeated without any known adverse effects.

 

Ultrasound is useful for evaluating a variety of conditions including pain, swelling and infection. It can be used to examine internal organs such as the uterus, ovaries, kidneys, liver, bladder, heart and thyroid. 

 

Color flow doppler ultrasound is utilized to visualize blood flow through blood vessels. An echocardiogram is another type of ultrasound exam that evaluates the heart, the heart's valve function, and the blood flow in both.
