Ultrasound

Ultrasound is a diagnostic exam that utilizes sound waves to image the body.  This is a safe and generally non-invasive exam.ultrasoundresize

A small device, known as a transducer, is positioned on the skin over the area of interest.  The transducer emits the sound waves.  The sound waves respond to the various tissues in the body, producing different echoes.  These echoes are collected by the transducer and the signals are converted into an image.
