Sonography/ Ultrasound

SonographyUltrasound.jpgMain Street Radiology utilizes advanced ultrasound technology to capture moving images of various parts of the body in order to diagnose potential problems. In addition to obstetrical purposes, sonograms can be performed to examine the following:

  • Abdomen
  • Liver
  • Gallbladder
  • Spleen
  • Aorta
  • Pelvis
  • Kidneys
  • Prostate
  • Thyroid
  • Breast
  • Brain

Sonograms are safe and easy. The patient will be comfortably positioned on an exam table and a clear gel will be applied to the area of the body being examined. Using a hand-held device called a transducer, ultrasound signals are sent and received, instantly being displayed on a computer monitor for review. Generally, the ultrasound will take 15-30 minutes. Patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately following the exam.
