Ultrasound

Ultrasound is a safe, painless diagnostic procedure that uses high frequency sound waves to see specific areas in the body. The primary benefit of ultrasound is its ability to generate highly-detailed images without being invasive and without using radiation. Ultrasound, also known as sonogram, is used for all ages, newborn to elderly.
