In Vogue Total Women’s Healthcare provides ultrasound imaging as a noninvasive medical option to help our physician diagnose and treat medical conditions. Our ultrasound machine has a 3D capability for special 3rd-trimester ultrasound images.
Sometimes called sonography, ultrasound imaging is the process of exposing a part of the body to high-frequency sound waves in order to produce pictures of the inside of the body. An ultrasound, unlike x-rays or CAT scans, does not produce any radiation. It allows the images to be captured in real-time, allowing us to see the structure and movement of the body’s internal organs.
Ultrasounds are extremely useful in that they can help doctors diagnose a variety of conditions, evaluate symptoms such as pain, swelling or infection, as well as examine many of the body’s internal organs.
For your ultrasound exam, you should wear loose-fitting and comfortable clothing and you will need to remove all jewelry and clothing in the area that’s going to be examined. Get in touch with us today if you should have any additional questions regarding preparing for your ultrasound at In Vogue Total Women’s Healthcare.
