We offer ultrasounds at the Tully Health Center, Darien Imaging Center, Greenwich Imaging Center, Wilton Imaging Center, and our main hospital.
Ultrasound is a painless and radiation-free imaging procedure that visualizes internal structures by recording and directing sound waves to a specific area of the body. These high-frequency sound waves are transmitted through a hand held transducer with the aid of ultrasound gel. The ultrasound technologist will maneuver the transducer in order to obtain different views. The sound waves are reflected off the area of interest and they are converted by a computer into sonographic images. These images are displayed onto a monitor and recorded for the radiologist to view them and interpret the results. Our highly skilled technologists perform ultrasound examinations in the areas of:
- Breast, for screening of breast cancer
- Vascular, to evaluate all blood vessels in the body. Examples of testing include Carotid, Lower Extremity Venous and Arterial Duplex, Venous Insufficiency, Mesenteric and Renal Artery Duplex
- OB/GYN including first-trimester pregnancies,
- Pediatric examinations
- Abdominal and general imaging
