Ultrasound

Diagnostic Imaging Services

Spencer Hospital 

 

UltrasoundThe Ultrasound has diagnostic procedures accomplished by sending high frequency sound waves into the patient. These waves produce a signal that is displayed on a screen. Internal organs, fetus in the mother’s womb, and Doppler blood flow studies of arteries and veins are routine procedures.

 

Ultrasound Benefits

  • Ultrasound scanning is noninvasive and is usually painless.
  • Ultrasound is widely available, easy-to-use and less expensive than other imaging methods.
  • Ultrasound imaging uses no ionizing radiation.
  • Ultrasound scanning gives a clear picture of soft tissues that do not show up well on x-ray images.
  • Ultrasound causes no health problems and may be repeated as often as is necessary if medically indicated.
  • Ultrasound is the preferred imaging modality for the diagnosis and monitoring of pregnant women and their unborn infants.
  • Ultrasound provides real-time imaging, making it a good tool for guiding minimally invasive procedures such as needle biopsies and aspiration of fluid elsewhere.
