MD Imaging’s revolutionary Sequoia® 512 ultrasound system makes it possible for physicians to obtain precise and detailed pictures from large, muscular or otherwise difficult-to-image patients and allow them to view even the smallest internal parts of the body.
Unlike an X-ray or radiation, an ultrasound uses sound waves and their echoes to produce pictures in many different places of the body.
A small plastic probe is placed lightly on the skin over the area being scanned. The transducer probe generates and receives high frequency sound waves which are electronically and acoustically focused on the area being scanned, producing a diagnostic image for the radiologist to interpret.
Sonograpahy can be used to visualize a developing fetus, examine the gallbladder and other abdominal organs and evaluate blood vessels for disease, such as carotid stenosis (narrowing).
The Ultrasound technologist will apply a water soluable gel to the area of your skin being examined. This gel will allow transmission of sound waves into your body. The technologist will apply the probe to your skin, scanning the area to obtain the required images. After the images are taken, they are stored on a disk, and may be printed on X-ray film.
All of our ultrasound technologists are RDMS registered and each has more than 10 years experience. In addition to this certification, we have specialized technologists who are N.T. certified for our First Trimester Ultrasound Screenings.
