ULTRASOUND

Patient Ultrasound

A picture of health

Ultrasound uses sound waves to create a picture of heart, thyroid, kidneys, or any part of your body. Ultrasound is one of the safest and most common procedures in the United States. Your physician may recommend ultrasound for a variety of reasons, but two of the most common are to check the function of your heart, or to locate any blockages in your vascular system.
An Echocardiogram is an ultrasound that evaluates the function of your heart and helps your doctor identify any damage that may have occurred. It serves to identify congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction, cardiomyopathy, or many other diseases that may effect your heart. It also may be used to routinely check on your recovery after a heart attack.

Ultrasound is also routinely used to identify plaque buildup throughout your peripheral vascular system. Left untreated, plaque can build up obstructing blood flow, or even breaks off for the vascular wall traveling to the brain and causing a stroke.
