An ultrasound, or sonogram, uses painless, high-frequency sound waves to allow doctors to examine organs and tissues. Similar to sonar or radar, the waves reflect back to create an image of the organ or other structure being examined.

Unlike an X-ray, an ultrasound does not require any exposure to radiation.

The ultrasound department is open from Monday to Saturday (8 AM to 5 PM). The department currently consists of trained sonologists and trained technicians. Working together, they provide clinical evaluation of 2D and 3D imaging.

Ultrasounds may be used to examine:

  • Abdominal organs and blood vessels
  • Blood flow through veins or arteries (Vascular/Doppler ultrasound)
  • Brain
  • Breast tissue (Sonomammogram)
  • Fetus / Baby
  • Heart
  • Ovaries
  • Pelvis
  • Prostate
  • Testicles
  • Thyroid
