Ultrasound

An ultrasound is a medical procedure that uses sound waves to "see" inside the body. It can be used to study the heart or to help check the health of an unborn baby. Ultrasounds are also useful in helping diagnose many medical conditions, such as cancer, gallbladder disease, blood clots and eye disorders.

What to Expect during an Ultrasound

Ultrasounds are safe and painless. Most ultrasounds are done using a sonar device and gel on outside of your body, but there are some that involve placing a device inside your body.
