Ultrasounds

We know that routine healthcare isn’t always convenient.

Ultrasounds provide a way to capture images of organs and other structures inside your body by using high-frequency sound waves.  They are one of the most trusted imaging processes that are not invasive. During an ultrasound, ultrasound waves are echoed off of tissues and converted into a picture called a sonogram. 

Reasons for why you’re having an ultrasound will determine how long the results will take to analyze.
