Women’s Ultrasound Clinic Services


Breast Ultrasound

If your doctor detects a mass on your breast examination or if you complain of a breast lump, an ultrasound may be ordered. A breast ultrasound may also be requested after an abnormal mammogram to get a ‘closer look’ at a particular area. The technologist or the radiologist will perform the imaging and will review the results with you at the time of the study. Ultrasound helps to determine if the finding is a benign process such as a cyst or a suspicious lesion that requires additional evaluation. Ultrasound may also be recommended if you have dense tissue or a family history of breast cancer. 

Thyroid Ultrasound

Your doctor may order a thyroid ultrasound to evaluate any physical changes of the thyroid gland such as enlargement or difficulty swallowing. A thyroid ultrasound shows cysts or masses in the thyroid. These are common, and most  imaging findings in the thyroid are benign (non-cancerous). If a suspicious nodule is identified, a biopsy may be performed to exclude malignancy (cancer). 

Pelvic Ultrasound

A pelvic ultrasound may be performed to get a detailed look at the pelvic organs including the uterus, cervix, ovaries, and fallopian tubes. The bladder is also considered part of the pelvic space. Ultrasound of the pelvis excels at evaluating solid or fluid-filled organs but is not optimal for evaluating gas-filled organs such as the bowel. Ultrasound is a primary imaging exam doctors can use to evaluate a finding detected on your clinical examination or a symptom you might have. 

Abdominal Ultrasound

Ultrasound can be used to produce detailed images of the abdominal organs including the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, kidneys, and spleen. Although some gas-filled organs including the stomach, small intestine, and large intestine are considered part of the abdomen anatomically, abdominal ultrasound is not optimal to evaluate these organs. An ultrasound scan of the abdomen can help identify conditions such as an enlarged  liver or gallstones.

Frequently Asked Questions About Ultrasounds

What is an Ultrasound?
Ultrasound is a radiology imaging technology that uses sound waves to characterize lumps or masses in the breast. Sound waves are emitted from crystals in a hand-held wand called a transducer or probe. The sound waves reflected back are presented as images for interpretation by a specialized radiologist to distinguish various findings.
What is Ultrasound used for?
Ultrasound is used for a variety of diagnostic purposes, including monitoring the development of a fetus during pregnancy, detecting and diagnosing medical conditions affecting the liver, kidneys, and other internal organs, and evaluating blood flow to different parts of the body.
How is an Ultrasound performed?
During an ultrasound, a special gel is applied to the skin over the area being examined. A handheld device called a transducer is then placed over the gel, emitting high-frequency sound waves that bounce off the body's internal structures. These sound waves are then converted into images that can be viewed on a monitor.
Do I need to prepare for an Ultrasound?
Preparation for an ultrasound can vary depending on the area being examined. For some exams, you may be asked to fast or drink water before the exam, while no preparation is necessary for others. Your healthcare provider will give you specific instructions.
