Ultrasound & Color Doppler
Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves as its imaging source.
Ultrasound imaging is based on the reflection of a sound wave after it collides with the anatomy being studied. The resulting pattern of that reflection is converted into diagnostic information via a hand-held transducer passed over the area being imaged.
First utilized some 50 years ago, this medical technology's non-radiation nature has made it the modality of choice for obgyn procedures most commonly associated with fetal imaging. We have the advanced ultrasound technology that extends beyond fetal imaging to include abdominal, pelvic, vascular, breast, and thyroid imaging.
