Ultrasound

ULTRA SOUND

CLINICAL DIAGNOSIS & BABY KEEPSAKES

Ultrasound imaging (sonography) uses high-frequency sound waves to view inside the body. Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, they can also show movement of the body’s internal organs as well as blood flowing through the blood vessels. Unlike X-ray imaging, there is no ionizing radiation exposure associated with ultrasound imaging.

In an ultrasound exam, a transducer (probe) is placed directly on the skin or inside a body opening. A thin layer of gel is applied to the skin so that the ultrasound waves are transmitted from the transducer through the gel into the body.

2D - 3D ULTRASOUND USES

Ultrasound imaging is a medical tool that can help a physician evaluate, diagnose and treat medical conditions. Common ultrasound imaging procedures include:

Is used to look at organs in the abdomen, including the liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, and kidneys. The blood vessels that lead to some of these organs, such as the inferior vena cava and aorta, can also be examined with ultrasound.

Introduced in 1992, using ultrasound (sound waves) instead of x-rays radiation. It is an established technique in osteoporosis diagnostics and involves the measurement of the linear acoustic parameters of bone (speed of sound, SOS, and broadband attenuation, BUA).

Breast ultrasound uses sound waves to make images of the breast. Ultrasound images may be called sonograms. Breast ultrasound is a non-invasive test. It’s often used as a follow-up test after an abnormal finding on a mammogram, breast MRI or clinical breast exam.

If a needle biopsy is needed, breast ultrasound may also be used to help guide the procedure.

A Doppler ultrasound is a noninvasive test that can be used to estimate the blood flow through your blood vessels by bouncing high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) off circulating red blood cells. A regular ultrasound uses sound waves to produce images, but can’t show blood flow. These ultrasounds may help diagnose many conditions, including:

  • Blood clots
  • Poorly functioning valves in your leg veins, which can cause blood or other fluids to pool in your legs (venous insufficiency)
  • Heart valve defects and congenital heart disease
    A blocked artery (arterial occlusion)
  • Decreased blood circulation into your legs (peripheral artery disease)
  • Bulging arteries (aneurysms)
  • Narrowing of an artery, such as in your neck (carotid artery stenosis)

An echocardiogram is a test that uses ultrasound to show how your heart muscle and valves are working. The sound waves make moving pictures of your heart so your doctor can get a good look at its size and shape. You might hear them call it “echo” for short.

Echocardiography uses standard two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and Doppler ultrasound to create images of the heart. All available here at Serene Diagnostic Imaging.

An ultrasound-guided needle biopsy is a medical test used to learn more about a lesion or mass. The biopsy is done by using an ultrasound to find the lesion or mass. This is one type of “image-guided” biopsy, which combines the use of ultrasound with either a Fine Needle Aspiration or Core Needle Biopsy.

This test is most often used for lymph node, breast, and liver biopsies.

fetal ultrasound (sonogram) is an imaging technique that uses sound waves to produce images of a fetus in the uterus. Fetal ultrasound images can help your health care provider evaluate your baby’s growth and development and monitor your pregnancy.

In addition to clinical necessary Ultrasounds that may be required by your doctor Serene Diagnostic Imaging offers “Keepsake Baby” Imaging.
