Services - Ultrasound

Ultrasound - is the use of ultrasonic waves to produce images of body structures. The waves travel through tissues and are reflected back where density differs (e.g., the border between a hollow organ's wall and its inside). The reflected echoes are received by an electronic apparatus that measures their intensity level and the position of the tissue reflecting them. The results can be displayed as still images or as a moving picture of the inside of the body.

Adrenal Gland- (also known as suprarenal glands) are the triangular-shaped endocrine glands that sit on top of the kidneys. They are chiefly responsible for releasing hormones in conjunction with stress through the synthesis of corticosteroids and catecholamines, including cortisol and adrenaline (epinephrine), respectively.Chest X-Ray - is a projection radiograph or the chest used to diagnose conditions affecting the chest, its contents and nearby structures. A chest X-ray is taken by a radiology technologist. The picture are usually read by a radiologist, who writes the report

Abdominal Ultrasound- is an imaging procedure used to examine the internal organs of the abdomen, including the liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, and kidneys. The blood vessels that lead to some of these organs can also be looked at with ultrasound.

Biliary Tree- is the common anatomy term for the path by which bile is secreted by the liver on its way to the duodenum, or small intestine, of most members of the mammal family. It is referred to as a tree because it begins with many small branches which end in the common bile duct, sometimes referred to as the trunk of the biliary tree. The duct is present along with the branches of the hepatic artery and the portal vein forming the central axis of the portal triad. Bile flows in opposite direction to that of the blood present in the other two channels.

BPS ( Biophysical profile Scoring)- is a noninvasive test that predicts the presence or absence of fetal asphyxia and, ultimately, the risk of fetal death in the antenatal period.

Breast - it produces a picture of the internal structures of the breast. A breast ultrasound can show all areas of the breast, including the area closest to the chest wall, which is hard to study with a mammogram. Breast ultrasound does not use X-rays or other potentially harmful types of radiation.

Gall Bladder- is a small organ that aids digestion and stores bile produced by the liver. In humans the loss of the gallbladder is not fatal.

HBT ( Hepatobiliary Tree )- This modality is the most important investigative tool in screening for biliary tract abnormalities and mass lesions in the liver.

HBT ( Pancreas )-a technique that uses sound waves to create an image of the pancreas

Inguinal- useful imaging modality aiding in the diagnosis of inguinal hernias and their complications both before and following surgery.

KUB ( Kidney, Urinary Bladder)- is a diagnostic test used to detect kidney stones and to diagnose some renal disorders.

KUB/Pelvic- is a procedure in which high-frequency sound waves create images of the pelvic organs.

KUB/Prostate- problems with a man's prostate.—- a firm partly muscular chestnut sized gland in males at the neck of the urethra; produces a viscid secretion that is the fluid part of semen.

Liver- can differentiate types and causes of liver malfunction, and it is also used to identify obstruction of the bile ducts and cirrhosis.

Lower Organs- (abdomen)the appendix, (female) fallopian tube, ovary, small bowel, and the colon.

Lungs- Either of two spongy, saclike respiratory organs in most vertebrates, occupying the chest cavity together with the heart and functioning to remove carbon dioxide from the blood and provide it with oxygen.

Mass- a lump or an aggregate of cells clumped together, such as a tumor.

Pancreas- a gland, situated near the stomach, that secretes a digestive fluid into the intestine through one or more ducts and also secretes the hormone insulin.

Pelvic Ultrasound- provides pictures of the structures and organs in the lower abdomen or pelvis. It is alsoused to monitor the health and development of an embryo or fetus during pregnancy. It is also used to guide procedures such as needle biopsies, in which needles are used to extract a sample of cells from organs for laboratory testing.

Renal– a test used to study the renal system, which includes the kidneys, bladder, and ureters (the tubes that connect the kidneys to the bladder).

Right Lower Quadrant- The region of the abdomen that contains the terminal ileum, appendix and cecum.

Scrotum- The external sac of skin enclosing the testes. Scrotal ultrasound is an imaging technique used for the diagnosis of suspected abnormalities of the scrotum.

Soft Tissue- refers to structures of the body that connect, envelope, support and/or move the structures around it.

TVS ( Transvaginal)- A transvaginal ultrasound is a diagnostic test which gives a magnified view of the cervix, uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes (if visible), the endometrial lining, and surrounding (adnexal) areas.

Trans rectal- a special study usually done to view the prostate gland, involves inserting a specialized ultrasound transducer into a man's rectum.

Thyroid- is an imaging method used to see the thyroid -- a gland in the neck that regulates metabolism.

Urinary Bladder- is the organ that collects urine excreted by the kidneys prior to disposal by urination.

Upper Abdomen- produces a picture of the organs and other structures in the upper abdomen.

UB/Prostate- also called transrectal ultrasound, provides images of a man's prostate gland and surroundingtissue. The exam typically requires insertion of an ultrasound probe into the rectum of the patient. The probe sends and receives sound waves through the wall of the rectum into the prostate gland which is situated right in front of the rectum.
