Ultrasound - Sound waves create vision

Ultrasound imaging, also called sonography, is a common diagnostic medical procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce dynamic images of organs, tissue, or blood flow inside the body.

A wand, or transducer, glides over the body sending a stream of high-frequency sound waves into the body and detects their echoes as they bounce off internal structures. The sound waves are generated into electrical impulses, which form an image displayed on a computer monitor.

Ultrasound can be used to image internal organs, as well as blood flow in arteries and veins. Another common use of sonography is monitoring the progress of pregnancy. At Pavilion Imaging, we have four ultrasound machines with the latest technology. All of our ultrasound units have 3-dimensional capability, which can provide your doctor with more detailed information for a better diagnosis.
