Ultrasound imaging is a diagnostic medical procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of organs, tissues and blood flow inside the body.
Ultrasound can be used to examine many parts of the body, such as the abdomen, breasts, female reproductive system, prostate, heart and blood vessels and more. During pregnancy, ultrasound technology is used to study the age and location of a fetus, as well as to examine the fetus for birth defects or other potential problems. Ultrasound can even identify heart disease.
At Washington Health System (WHS), we have a team of expertly trained and certified sonographers who perform all ultrasound examinations. After each exam, one of our board-certified radiologists will interpret the results.
