Ultrasound

A Better Ultrasound Experience.

Convenience is important so we offer Ultrasound exams at our center and can often accommodate same-day exams and flexible scheduled appointments.

The cost of an Ultrasound exam is substantially lower than the cost of the same exam performed at a local hospital. We believe that offering value, without compromise, is the right thing to do.

What is an Ultrasound?

Ultrasound imaging uses high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. It does not use radiation and provides clear pictures of soft tissues that don’t show up well on X-rays. Images are captured in real time and can show the movement of the body’s internal organs.

The radiologist will review the ultrasound images and provide a diagnostic report that will be sent directly to your provider. The report is typically available to your provider within 24 hours. Many providers plan scheduled time to discuss results with their patients so you could check with their office to see when they will be available to review the information with you.

A full bladder is required for this exam. Drink 32oz of water 90 minutes before your exam. Please do not empty your bladder.
