Most people associate ultrasounds with getting a first peek at a baby on the way. But ultrasounds can also be used to diagnose or monitor a wide range of conditions throughout the body.
How Ultrasounds Work
During an ultrasound exam, high-frequency sound waves-far above the range of human hearing–get reflected back from your internal organs. A computer records and interprets the resulting echoes and then generates an image of the area being examined. Ultrasounds are good at showing images of soft tissue, which is something traditional X-ray machines don’t do a good job of capturing.
Ultrasounds are safe, painless and don’t use radiation. Inspira technologists can perform ultrasounds at many of our South Jersey imaging locations.
