Ultrasound

The diagnostic ultrasound profession is a multi-specialty field comprised of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (with subspecialties in abdominal, neurological, obstetrical/gynecologic and “small parts” ultrasound), Vascular Technology, and other emerging fields.

Advancements in ultrasound, such as:
  • Gray-scale and real-time ultrasound
  • Color Doppler
Diagnostic ultrasound (sonography) uses high frequency sound waves to visualize anatomy. State-of-the art imaging equipment allows visualization of minute tissue detail and vascular structures with precision for more accurate diagnosis.

Imaging studies range from gall bladder and obstetrics to intricate biopsies that rely on ultrasound guidance, including:
  • Liver
  • Renal
  • Thyroid
  • Prostate
