Diagnostic Ultrasound

We offer a wide range of diagnostic ultrasound exams including general, small parts, OB/GYN with 3D and 4D imaging, breast, vascular, elastography, and pediatrics. Our variety of ultrasound machines allows us the advantage of producing the highest quality images specific to each exam. Our multiple exam rooms allow our flexible scheduling and same-day appointments.

In Preparation

There are preps for abdominal, pelvic, cardiac, and OB imaging to help our skilled ultrasound technologist visualize specific body parts.  OB and pelvic examinations require a full bladder for imaging.  Abdominal scans are usually scheduled in the mornings so you can come fasting.  Cardiac ultrasounds require no caffeine or stimulants.  See our full prep instructions below.

What to Expect

Imaging with ultrasound is done with a trained Diagnostic Medical Sonographer who will use gel and a transducer to image soft tissue, and vascular blood flow, and monitor fetal development in pregnancy or OB.
