Sound Waves Generate Images Used to Evaluate and Diagnose Conditions
What is an Ultrasound?
Most Ultrasound procedures do not require preparation. The exceptions are:
Gallbladder, Liver and Pancreas Ultrasounds: Please have nothing to eat or drink at least 8 hours prior to the start of your test.
Pelvis and Fetal Ultrasounds: You need to drink at least 32 ounces of water 1 to 1 1/2 hours prior to your procedure. You must have a full bladder for this procedure.
Ultrasound uses sound waves rather than X-rays to generate images that are used to evaluate and diagnose various medical conditions. We perform many types of ultrasounds, from obstetrics and gynecology to abdominal, vascular, thyroid and scrotal imaging. Ultrasounds are entirely painless and generally take approximately 20 to 45 minutes to complete.
Lourdes Imaging Associates is also pleased to announce that we are one of the only facilities in South Jersey providing MSK ultrasound procedures provided by fellowship trained Radiologists.
