Ultrasound

Ultrasound is a simple, safe, and painless diagnostic procedure that bounces high-frequency sound waves off parts of the body and captures the returning "echo" as images. There is no injection required or radiation exposure associated with ultrasound procedures.

Rose Radiology Centers, Inc. employs only registered and certified ultrasonographers.

Ultrasound can capture moving images of fetal development, the kidneys, pelvic and abdominal function, breast abnormalities and other applications. One other application is the use of ultrasound with an additional Doppler technique that captures images of the blood circulating through the heart and blood vessels.

Our Ultrasonographer will apply a conducting gel to your skin and use a transducer to pass the sound waves through your body. The ultrasound unit captures these "echoes" to create an image that is instantly displayed on a television like monitor. These images can then be printed to film for a radiologists interpretation. Each exam typically takes 20 to 50 minutes.
