Ultra Sound

When only the best scan is needed for size and remembrance!

Ultrasound uses sound waves to produce pictures of the structures inside the body. It is used to help diagnose the causes of pain, swelling and infection in the body's internal organs, and to examine the baby in a pregnant woman, and the brain and hips in small children. It is also used to help guide biopsies, diagnose heart conditions and assess damage after a heart attack. Ultrasound is safe, non-invasive and does not use radiation therapy. This procedure requires little or no special preparation. The doctor will give you instructions on how to prepare if necessary.


What is the diagnosis by images with the use of ultrasound?

Ultrasound is safe and painless and produces images of the inside of the body using sound waves. Ultrasound imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or ultrasound, involves the use of a small transducer (probe) and a gel for ultrasound for exposure of the body to high frequency acoustic waves. The transducer picks up the bouncing sounds and a computer then uses those sound waves to create an image. Because ultrasound images dry out in real time, they can show the structure and movement of the body's internal organs, as well as the blood that flows through the blood vessels. Ultrasound imaging is a non-invasive medical examination that helps to doctors to diagnose and treat medical conditions. Conventional ultrasound presents the images in thin and flat sections of the body. Advances in ultrasound technology include three-dimensional (3-D) ultrasound that transforms acoustic wave data into 3-D imaging. A Doppler ultrasound study can be part of an ultrasound examination. Doppler ultrasound consists of a special technique ultrasound that allows the doctor to see and evaluate the circulation of blood through arteries and veins in the abdomen, arms, legs, neck and / or brain (in infants and children), or within various organs of the body such as the liver and kidneys.

There are three types of Doppler ultrasound: Color Doppler uses a computer to convert Doppler measurements into a set of colors to show the velocity and direction of blood flow through a blood vessel. Doppler with energy is a more advanced technique that is more sensitive than color Doppler and able to provide greater detail of blood flow, especially in the vessels that are found inside the organs. However, powered Doppler does not help the radiologist determine the direction of flow, which may be important in some situations. Spectral Doppler displays blood flow measurements graphically as a function of distance traveled per unit of time, rather than You can also display information about the flow of blood in a distinctive sound that can be heard with each beat of the heart.

What are some of the common uses of this procedure?

Ultrasound examinations can help diagnose various diseases and assess organ damage after a disease.As used to help doctors diagnose symptoms such as: aches and pains infection. The ultrasound is Useful for examining many of the internal organs of the body, including enunciative and non-limiting such as: heart and blood vessels, including the abdominal aorta and its main ramifications: liver, vesicular biliary, spleen, pancreas, kidneys, bladder, uterus, ovaries and unborn child (fetus) in pregnant patients, thyroid gland, parathyroid gland, scrotum (testes), brain in infants, in infants, vertebral column in infants. Ultrasound is also used to: guide procedures such as aspiration biopsies, in which needles are used to sample cells from an abnormal area for laboratory tests.
