Ultrasound is a safe, noninvasive, pain-free form of diagnostic imaging that does not typically require the use of general anesthesia. Ultrasound images are created by capturing the reflection of sound waves from organs and other structures in the body. The chest and abdomen are the most common areas in which ultrasound is utilized, though often diagnostic in imaging thyroid glands, joints, ligaments, and muscles. Ultrasound is a useful diagnostic tool for surgical planning, imaging and diagnosing diseases such as:

  • Thoracic and Abdominal Masses
  • Bladder Stones
  • Cancer Cushing’s/Addison’s Disease
  • Portosystemic Shunts
