Ultrasound scans, also known as sonograms or ultrasonography, is a type of imaging that uses high frequency sound waves used by the computer to create images of particular areas inside the body. Ultrasounds are painless and use no radiation.
Schneck offers vascular sonography for the Vein Center
as well as abdominal and gynecological imaging in the Diagnostic Imaging and Women's Diagnostic Imaging Center. Ultrasounds are typically used the diagnose problems of the liver, heart, kidney or abdomen. They are also useful for assisting surgeons and radiologists during specialty procedures.
Once the images are obtained, the radiologist will be notified. Radiology reports will be provided to your attending provider - whether in the Emergency Room or a doctor's office.
