What is an Ultrasound?
Ultrasounds are a safe and widely used technique that use inaudible sound waves to deliver superb images without the use of radiation. Ultrasound has no known harmful effects and can be particularly useful to diagnose soft tissue conditions and as such is routinely used to evaluate the abdominal and pelvic organs, the breast, muscles, tendons and ligaments, as well as other small body parts such as the thyroid gland and lymph nodes.
Images are captured in real-time which enhances the diagnostic capabilities for things like pregnancy and blood flow, and is ideal for performing procedures under imaging guidance such as pain relief injections, treatment of tendon injuries as well as taking of small specimens of tissue for analysis, known as either a Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) or a Biopsy.
