Ultrasound

UDI offers modern ultrasound technology that provides your physician with the most accurate diagnostic tools for the exam that was ordered.

Modern Ultrasound Equipment

Diagnostic ultrasound, also called sonography or medical sonography, uses sound waves to produce high-quality images of the soft tissues of the body. The images produced during an ultrasound can be used to diagnose a variety of diseases and conditions, and inform the best form of treatment.

There is no radiation involved in an ultrasound. Ultrasound uses sound waves to provide information about internal organs and soft tissue and unlike XRAY, the patient is not exposed to radiation.

Ultrasound data is often is used for examining a fetus in utero, studying the flow of blood through veins and arteries, and in diagnosing gallstones and prostate abnormalities.

How To Prepare For Your Imaging

If you are scheduled for a pelvic or an OB ultrasound, your bladder must be full in order to perform your exam.

What To Expect During Your Imaging

The technologist performing your exam will place a warm jelly-like substance over the area to be scanned. A small hand-held instrument (transducer) will then be passed over this area. The technologist will guide you through the procedure and answer questions you may have regarding the exam. They are not able to diagnose or suggest treatment options. This will be done by your physician after examining your sonogram.
