Ultrasound exams are fast, safe and completely non-invasive. They work by sending sound waves to a specific part of the body. These sound waves are then transmitted back to the ultrasound machine, where they are used to create a real-time image of your organs and tissues.
Our medical professionals can identify potential problems such as blockages, growths or internal scarring.
