Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to generate images of the organs and soft tissue structures inside your abdomen. It does not use radiation or xrays to produce these images and it has no known medical side effects at the frequencies used.
Ultrasound is an operator dependent imaging modality. What does that mean? It means that the person performing your ultrasound (Sonographer) has to be skilled in identifying the differences in your scan to determine if there is something wrong. At Sound Radiology, we have sub-specialist Sonographers that are passionate about the ultrasound imaging they perform. This includes specialist obstetric Sonographers, paediatric Sonographers through to specialist sports injury (or musculoskeletal) Sonographers. We take our ultrasound imaging seriously and it is very difficult to have a Sonographer who is an expert across all areas, so when you next need an ultrasound, make sure that your Sonographer has the passion and expertise to perform your scan.
The latest technology to provides us the best opportunity for detecting abnormalities. At Sound Radiology, we ensure that our fleet of ultrasound systems is updated regularly to ensure that we provide the best we can in image quality and pathology detection.
