At Adventist HealthCare Imaging, our ultrasounds use safe, painless sound waves—not radiation—to create pictures of the inside of your body.

What is an Ultrasound?

Ultrasound imaging, or sonography, is a safe and painless diagnostic procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to image soft tissue organs or vessels throughout the body. It involves the use of a small transducer (probe) and ultrasound gel placed directly on the skin to show organs, a fetus or blood vessels in real time.

Adventist HealthCare Imaging locations offer several types of ultrasounds, including:

  • Breast
  • Abdominal
  • Fetal
  • Pelvic
  • Renal/Kidney
  • Renal Doppler
  • Vascular Ultra/Carotid doppler and for DVT
  • Thyroid ultrasound

Each form of ultrasound allows physicians to see the identified organ or area.

Why Adventist HealthCare?

All Adventist HealthCare Imaging locations offer ultrasound and hold accreditations in ultrasound from the American College of Radiology (ACR). Our expert team includes:

  • Technologists that hold advanced certifications
  • Board-certified radiologists

If you need breast ultrasound, you’ll find an ACR-accredited program at Adventist Health Care Shady Grove Breast Center.
