Ultrasound is a safe, radiation-free imaging procedure that utilizes echoes of sound waves to visualize soft tissue and fluids in the body. It is particularly good in examining the organs in the abdomen and pelvis (liver, gall bladder, pancreas, kidneys, spleen, bladder, uterus, ovaries and testicles). It is also used to evaluate fetal development, certain breast conditions and the thyroid gland.
A modified ultrasound technique, known as Doppler, captures moving blood images of the heart and large blood vessels.
At Signet Diagnostic, we’re equipped with the ATL Ultramark 9 High Definition Imaging Scanners. These advanced scanners capture more subtle differences in tissue texture and provide clearer transitions in tissue interfaces, which result in visualization of more minute anatomical details.
All Signet Diagnostic ultrasound services are accredited by the American College of Radiology.
