Ultrasound Creates "Pictures" Of
Organs And Body Structures
Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to create pictures of organs and structures inside the body. A device called a transducer directs sound waves into the body.
When those sound waves bounce off of tissues, fluids, and organs, the transducer records the changes in pitch and direction. A computer then analyzes the changes and produces a "real-time" picture.
Ultrasound can be used to evaluate:
Internal organs such as the pancreas or kidneys
The fetus during pregnancies
Blood vessels (Doppler)
The heart (Echocardiogram)
Appointments may be scheduled for
7:00 am - 8:00 pm
Note: Echocardiograms are scheduled for
7:30 am - 1:45 pm
