Ultrasound

What is an Ultrasound?

Whether it is used to get an early glimpse of your unborn baby or help evaluate the cause of muscle or joint pain, an Ultrasound is a simple procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to create an image of the tissues inside your body. Ultrasound may be used for a variety of screening and diagnostic reasons and, often times, may be used in conjunction with other imaging tests to get a more complete picture of what is going on inside the body. At Fairfax Radiology, we offer high-resolution Ultrasound, as well as standard and color Doppler capabilities that allow us to determine the flow of blood through the vessels.

List of Procedures in this Category

Breast Ultrasound

A noninvasive procedure that uses sound waves to create an image of the tissues inside your breast.

Abdomen, Renal, Pelvic, Scrotal Ultrasounds

Noninvasive tests that use sound waves to create a real-time image of the inside of the lower portion of the body—namely the abdomen, kidneys (renal), pelvic area or testicles (scrotal).

Obstetric (OB) Ultrasound

A routine test that uses high-frequency sound waves to evaluate a pregnancy and determine fetal development and delivery due dates.

Image-Guided Thyroid Biopsy/Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA)

A procedure that uses a fine needle and an Ultrasound as guidance to extract a tissue sample to test any suspicious nodules in the thyroid.

Echocardiogram

A type of exam that utilizes sound waves to view images of the vessels, chambers and valves of the heart.

Neck/Thyroid Ultrasound

A test that uses sound waves to create images of the thyroid and parathyroid glands and other soft tissues in the neck to evaluate suspected nodules and monitor any changes in nodules that have been discovered.

Musculoskeletal (MSK) Ultrasound

A relatively quick test that helps to evaluate the soft tissues in the body, such muscles, tendons, ligaments and bursae.

Abdominal (Hernia) Ultrasound

A simple, noninvasive test that uses sound waves to create a real-time image of the inside of the abdominal wall.

Carotid, Aorta, Arterial, Venous Doppler

Noninvasive tests that use sound waves (Ultrasound) and computer-generated graphs to measure the amount and direction of blood flow through your arteries and veins.

Pediatric Ultrasound

A simple procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to create an image of the tissues inside a child's body.

Hysterosonogram

A minimally invasive Ultrasound exam that provides images of the inside of the uterus

Prostate Ultrasound

A type of exam that utilizes sound waves to produce images of the prostate and surrounding tissue
