ULTRASOUND
Tissue Harmonic Imaging (THI) offers superior tissue detail and contrast without the use of any contrast agents

  • Superior cardiovascular diagnostic capability

Ultrasound (also known as a sonogram) emits high frequency sound waves (above the audible range of the human ear) to produce images of internal organs, tissues and vessels. There are no known side effects and it is considered to be very safe.

What to expect:

  • You will be asked some questions about your health and in particular, your current symptoms.
  • You will be invited to lie down on an exam table and the lights in the room may be dimmed so that the pictures on the television screen can be seen more clearly.
  • A water based gel will be applied to your skin over the area to be examined, for example the abdomen. The gel allows the transducer to slide easily over the skin and helps to produce clear pictures.
  • The transducer produces the sound waves and interprets the information into an image on a computer monitor and is recorded for interpretation.
