“Pictures” of Organs and Body Structures

Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to create pictures of organs and structures inside the body. A device called a transducer directs sound waves into the body.

When those sound waves bounce off of tissues, fluids, and organs, the transducer records the changes in pitch and direction. A computer then analyzes the changes and produces a “real-time” picture.

Ultrasound can be used to evaluate:

  • Internal organs such as the pancreas or kidneys
  • The fetus during pregnancies
  • Blood vessels (Doppler)
  • The heart (Echocardiogram)

Appointments may be scheduled for 7:00 am – 8:00 pm
Note: Echocardiograms are scheduled for 7:30 am – 1:45 pm
