Ultrasound

Great Lakes Medical Imaging is a Gold Seal for Ultrasound facility accredited by the American College of Radiology, which means that it adheres to the highest national professional standards for the practice of ultrasonic imaging and radiation oncology.

What is an ultrasound?

Ultrasonic imaging, also known as sonography, uses high-frequency sound waves to obtain real-time images of muscles, tendons, and internal organs. With the help of a gel applied directly to your skin, images are produced from the reflection of sound waves. No contrast agent is required for ultrasonic imaging. This procedure is safe and painless for patients and provides physicians accurate images of a variety of internal areas. Great Lakes Medical Imaging performs the following ultrasounds:

  • Abdomen
  • Aorta
  • Breast
  • Carotid Doppler
  • Kidney
  • Musculoskeletal
  • Obstetric (pregnancy)
  • Pelvis
  • Soft Tissue
  • Testicular
  • Thyroid
  • Transvaginal
  • Venous Doppler

What will I experience during an ultrasound?

  • The technologist will apply gel directly on your skin, in the area of your body needing images.
  • The technologist will move a hand-held wand slowly over your body.
