Ultrasound

Our Siemens ACUSON S2000 Ultrasound System expands ultrasounds beyond its traditional role. It offers superior-quality images and supports a broad range of applications including urology, OB/GYN, vascular, perinatology, pediatrics, neurology and general radiology. It features virtual touch tissue imagery, the world's first and only implementation of acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) strain imaging, bringing a broad range of clinical applications.

Now our radiologists can instantly see expansive views of internal organs using high-resolution, real-time ultrasound. This technology delivers superb 2D, 3D, Doppler and 4D imaging for the most demanding clinical applications.

This system provides patients with more efficient and cost-effective care. In some cases, the large amount of information instantly provided by the panoramic image eliminates the need for more expensive tests, such as MRI and CT.


Understanding the basics of ultrasound.

Ultrasound examination, also called sonography or diagnostic medical sonography, is an imaging method that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce precise images of structures within your body. The images produced during an ultrasound examination often provide information that's valuable in diagnosing and treating a variety of diseases and conditions.

Ultrasound may be used, among other things, to:

  • Evaluate a fetus
  • Diagnose gallbladder disease
  • Evaluate flow in blood vessels
  • Check your thyroid gland
  • Study your heart
  • Diagnose some forms of infection
  • Diagnose some forms of cancer
  • Reveal abnormalities in the scrotum and  prostate
  • Evaluate abnormalities of the muscles and tendons
