What is it?
A diagnostic ultrasound is a non-invasive imaging technique that can be used to examine various organs and structures in the body, such as the liver, gallbladder, kidneys, heart, blood vessels, and female and male reproductive organs.
What Can it detect?
Ultrasound screening can be used to detect early signs of certain conditions or diseases before symptoms even arise. This allows for early intervention and treatment, which can significantly improve health outcomes. Some examples of preventative health screenings that can be done with ultrasound include:
BREAST CANCER SCREENING
An ultrasound can be used to detect small breast tumors that may not be visible on a mammography.
ABDOMINAL AORTIC ANEURYSM SCREENING
Ultrasounds can detect the presence of an aneurysm in the abdominal aorta before it ruptures, which can be life-saving.
THYROID CANCER SCREENING
Ultrasounds can detect nodules or other abnormalities in the thyroid gland that may indicate cancer.
Ultrasounds are used during pregnancy to monitor the growth and development of the fetus and detect any abnormalities.
Why should you get a Diagnostic Ultrasound?
A diagnostic ultrasound can be used as a preventative health screening tool and also an exploratory technique to assess the possible root cause of any symptoms the patient might be experiencing. There are many important reasons why your healthcare provider may order a diagnostic ultrasound for you, such as:
Ultrasounds can help diagnose a variety of medical conditions such as gallstones, kidney stones, cysts and tumors, as well as conditions affecting the reproductive system such as ovarian cysts and uterine fibroids.
Regular ultrasounds are essential for patients who have ongoing medical conditions that require close monitoring such as heart condition or pregnancy to check for fetal growth and development.
Ultrasounds can be used to evaluate the health of your organs and tissues, such as the liver, pancreas, and thyroid gland allowing for early intervention and treatment.
- Gallstones: form when bile stored in the gallbladder hardens into stone-like material. Too much cholesterol, bile salts, or bilirubin (bile pigment) can cause gallstones.
- Cholecystitis: is a redness and swelling (inflammation) of the gallbladder. It happens when bile becomes trapped and builds up in the gallbladder.
- Ovarian Cysts: Ovarian cysts are fluid filled sacs that form on your ovaries. These cysts may also develop inside your ovaries and can contain other materials.
