Ultrasound

Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to create an anatomical image of the body. It provides real-time information of the body part being examined. The sonographer then uses a transducer (a hand-held device which produces and receives the sound waves) to take images and/or video clips for the radiologist to make a diagnosis. Ultrasound can be performed on most body parts. It is radiation-free, fast and capable of very high resolution. Aspire Radiology provides a wide range of ultrasound examinations and procedures.
