Ultrasound

20140926_165128Ultrasound can also be referred to as sonography. It uses sound waves to develop images of the internal organs. Ultrasound can be used for visualizing body structures including tendons, muscles, joints, internal organs and pregnancy. These real time images are reviewed by our Radiologist and a report is generated within 24 hours.

3D & 4D images are also available! Call for additional information.
