General Ultrasound

Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. It is used to help diagnose the causes of pain, swelling and infection in the body’s internal organs and to examine a baby in pregnant women and the brain and hips in infants. It’s also used to help guide biopsies, diagnose heart conditions, and assess damage after a heart attack. Ultrasound is safe, noninvasive, and does not use ionizing radiation.

This procedure requires little to no special preparation. Our Sonographer will instruct you on how to prepare, including whether you should refrain from eating or drinking beforehand. Leave jewelry at home and wear loose, comfortable clothing. You may be asked to wear a gown.

Ultrasound facilities are available for obstetric monitoring of the mothers and baby’s development. Other ultrasound services include organ and  pelvic examinations. The Clinic is available on Wednesday and  Friday from 9 am-5 pm. X-ray facilities are projected to commence during 2019.
