Ultrasound

Ultrasonography allows for complete 3D, real time visualization of a number of internal structures and processes. Unlike plain radiographs (x-rays), ultrasound imaging allows us to see the tissue architecture within organs, to visualise the pumping process of the heart and to make accurate measurements of a number of structures within the body. It is also an excellent means of obtaining minimally invasive guided biopsy samples. Because we believe ultrasonography requires the expertise of someone who is specifically trained and performs multiple ultrasound examinations daily, we utilize the services of a dedicated mobile ultrasonographer to perform ultrasounds in our clinic whenever indicated.
