Ultrasound is a safe, radiation-free imaging procedure that utilizes echoes of sound waves to visualize soft tissue and fluids in the body. It is particularly good in examining the organs in the abdomen and pelvis (liver, gall bladder, pancreas, kidneys, spleen, bladder, uterus, ovaries and testicles). It is also used to evaluate fetal development, certain breast conditions and the thyroid gland.

Radiography (X-ray) is a simple and painless procedure that allows our radiologist to analyze the bony and soft tissue anatomy for diagnosis. In addition to bones and joints, X-rays are particularly good for looking at the chest, lungs, stomach and intestines.
