Ultrasound is a non-invasive imaging method that uses high frequency sound waves to produce images of structures within the body, using a transducer. Commonly used to evaluate the abdominal and pelvic organs, breasts, thyroid glands, heart, testes, and blood flow in arteries and veins.
Ultrasound is a simple, safe, painless diagnostic procedure that bounces high-frequency sound waves off parts of the body and captures the returning “echoes” as images. There is no injection or radiation exposure associated with ultrasound. Triumph Radiology offers many different types of ultrasound exams. Ultrasound is able to capture moving images of pelvic and abdominal function (including gallstones), breast abnormalities, the male reproductive system, the kidney and thyroid systems, as well as the developing fetus, among other applications. When enhanced with a special Doppler technique, ultrasound can also capture moving blood images of large blood vessels and moving images of the heart using echocardiography.
