Ultrasound

Ultrasound is the use of high frequency sound waves to create images from within the body. By using these sound waves, images can be obtained from a variety of internal organs and structures. Ultrasound is utilized in studies of the major organs, the heart, blood vessels, and in obstetrics where the unborn fetus can be observed.

Our Sonographers are all graduates of accredited Ultrasound schools and are registered or registry eligible with the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers.

Our advanced trained and credentialed team of Ultrasound sonographers have years of experience with Ultrasound imaging and work in conjunction with our board-certified Radiologists to use a vast array of imaging procedures from the embryo to the elderly – ensuring that they are providing our patients with the best possible medical care.

Trophon Unit
We offer the Trophon unit which is the state of the art high level disinfecting system. This offers highly officiate ultrasound probe disinfection in 7 minutes. Where other ultrasound departments use glutaraldehyde to sterilize probes, we have this superior hydrogen peroxide unit that eliminates all forms of microbial life. There is a new study that shows that the Trophon is the first high level disinfection system for ultrasound probes that is effective against high-risk, cancer causing strains of Human Papilloma Virus.
