Ultrasound is a non-invasive imaging procedure that does not use radiation. Ultrasound is particularly useful in soft tissue and organ studies. Some examinations are preferred to have the patient fasting so that air in the stomach and intestines does not interfere with the study. Depending on the exam requested by the medical provider you will be instructed as to fasting, full bladder, etc. Most exams take approximately 30 minutes.
Carotid ultrasound is performed to check for plaque formation and other abnormalities in the carotid arteries. These exams take approximately 1 hour.
Echocardiography (ultrasound of the heart) takes approximately 1-2 hours.
All non-emergent ultrasound procedures are scheduled Monday through Friday.
Mammograms are x-ray images of the breast. They are recommended on a yearly basis for all women over the age of 40.
Digital mammography uses computerized capture of the breast tissue to produce images that offer high resolution and sharper image detail. Computerized images also offer the Radiologist the ability to maneuver the density, zoom in/out for viewing.
