We know that routine healthcare isn’t always convenient.
Ultrasounds provide a way to capture images of organs and other structures inside your body by using high-frequency sound waves. They are one of the most trusted imaging processes that are not invasive. During an ultrasound, ultrasound waves are echoed off of tissues and converted into a picture called a sonogram. Our skilled and trained technicians and physicians perform all ultrasounds within our state-of-the-art Imaging Center.
Reasons for why you’re having an ultrasound will determine how long the results will take to analyze. If you’d like more information about our ultrasound services, please contact us.
How do I need to prepare? Your doctor will let you know what kind of ultrasound you are having and more specific instructions. Here is an overview of how to prepare for specific ultrasounds:

Are ultrasounds dangerous during pregnancy?
