Ultrasound examinations help physicians diagnose a variety of conditions that may produce symptoms such as pain, swelling and infection. They are especially useful for examining many of the body's internal organs, including but not limited to the:
- Abdominal Aorta
- Uterus, ovaries, and unborn child (fetus) in pregnant patients
- Thyroid and parathyroid glands
- Scrotum (testicles)
- Upper and Lower Venous
What is an Ultrasound?
Ultrasound, also known as sonography, is a safe exam that uses high-frequency sound waves to obtain images. Its main benefit is its ability to capture images in real-time without being invasive or using radiation.
Ultrasound images show the structure and movement of internal organs, as well as blood flow through the body's major arteries and veins. A doctor may order an ultrasound to identify changes in the appearance of organs, tissues or blood vessels.
When you receive an ultrasound at Palos Imaging & Diagnostics, your images will be read by an experienced radiologist and a report will be sent to your ordering provider.
