Our office is equipped with state of the art ultrasound machines. Scanning is done in our office by our certified ultrasonographers. Our office is certified by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine
, a nationally recognized organization.
Ultrasound studies are done for obstetrical and gynecologic reasons. Non pregnant patients will often have ultrasounds to evaluate abnormal periods, pelvic pain, ovarian cysts, fibroids
and other gynecologic problems. We can approach the pelvic organs either from the abdomen or with the use of a special vaginal probe. In certain situations, we recommend an ultrasound test called a sonohysterogram
, in which water is instilled into the uterus to help define polyps or other abnormalities. Doppler studies can also be performed in our office when indicated. Doppler studies are done when blood flow is measured in a mass to determine the risk of cancer.
