ULTRASOUND – GENERAL
Ultrasound (aka Sonography) utilizes sound waves rather than x-rays to produce a medical image or picture of various organs and tissues in the body.All of our exams are performed by a Radiologist, allowing our patients to detail their history and complaints directly to the physician.
LSG Imaging is ACR accredited to perform ultrasound exams. Our office performs abdominal, pelvic, thyroid, scrotal, breast, hernia and musculoskeletal ultrasound. Ultrasound is also utilized for breast biopsies and cyst aspirations.
Each examination is “tailor made” to the patient, which is critical when performing such exams as breast ultrasound, or musculoskeletal ultrasound (for the detection of hernias). A physical exams and/or special maneuvers during scanning enhances our diagnostic accuracy.
LSG Imaging has special expertise in the area of OB/GYN, where pelvic exams are performed transabdominally and transvaginally.
We are proud to be the developers of transvaginal pelvic ultrasound.
