Ultrasound Scans

General diagnostic ultrasound is used by all radiologists to obtain diagnostic and function information related to organs in your body. In an ultrasound procedure, high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) are transmitted to tissues or organs and make echoes.

The echo patterns — interpreted by a computer — create a visual image (sonogram) of the tissues and organs under examination. Most ultrasound images are obtained by gently pressing and rolling a handheld transducer (probe) over areas of the body with a warm gel utilized to improve sound wave propagation.
