What are diagnostic ultrasounds?

Diagnostic ultrasounds are imaging tests that diagnose health conditions. Ultrasound imaging uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of your internal organs. 

The sound waves enter your body through a handheld device called a transducer. The sound waves bounce off your organs, return to the transducer, and then go to a computer that translates the sounds into images. 

Unlike X-rays and CT scans, diagnostic ultrasounds don’t use radiation and are safe, noninvasive, and painless. 

What are some types of diagnostic ultrasounds?

The skilled radiologists at My Choice Imaging, LLC use ultrasound imaging to evaluate many areas of the body. The state-of-the-art center offers many types of diagnostic ultrasounds, including:

Abdominal ultrasounds

Abdominal ultrasounds take pictures of the vital organs in the abdominal area like your liver, kidneys, and pancreas. This test can diagnose gallbladder disease, liver cancer, and pancreatitis.

Arterial ultrasounds

Arterial ultrasounds evaluate the arteries in the legs and arms, looking for signs of narrowing and blockages to diagnose peripheral artery disease (PAD).

Venous ultrasounds

Venous ultrasounds take pictures of the veins in your legs, checking for problems that may affect circulation and the return of oxygen-poor blood to your heart and lungs.

Doppler ultrasounds

Doppler ultrasounds are a special ultrasound that measures the movement of blood through the arteries and veins. 

Thyroid ultrasounds

Thyroid ultrasounds evaluate the thyroid gland in the neck, looking for nodules that may affect thyroid function.
