General Imaging Services

Care Diagnostics for Women also offers a variety of general imaging services:

 

Thyroid Ultrasound:

A thyroid ultrasound creates images of the thyroid to check for lumps, enlargement, or to keep track of size change. The ultrasound can help measure the size and shape of the thyroid gland, but it cannot tell how well the thyroid gland is working. The exam may also be used to check the four parathyroid glands that lie behind or next to the thyroid.

 

Pelvic Ultrasound:

A pelvic ultrasound uses sound waves to create images of the organs and structures within the pelvis.  Depending on the view needed, pelvic ultrasounds can be performed either transabdominal and/or transvaginal.

It is recommended to drink 4 to 6 glasses of water in preparation for the exam, to expand the bladder for optimal visualization of the pelvic structures.

 

Abdominal Ultrasound:

An abdominal ultrasound looks at the gallbladder, bile ducts, kidneys, liver, pancreas, and spleen. It also includes a view of the aorta and retroperitoneum. An instrument called a transducer is used to produce a picture of your abdominal cavity with sonar sound waves.

 

Renal Ultrasound:

A renal ultrasound is a painless and non-invasive procedure in which sound waves are bounced off the kidneys to create images of the kidney and related structures. These ultrasounds measure the size, shape and exact position of the kidneys to determine if any abnormalities are present. They are usually ordered when there is a concern of kidney or bladder problems.

 

Lower Extremity Venous Doppler:

A Doppler ultrasound test uses reflected sound waves to see how blood flows through a blood vessel and evaluates blood flow through major arteries and veins. It can show blocked or reduced flow of blood through narrow areas in the major arteries of the neck that could cause a stroke. It also can reveal blood clots in leg veins that could break loose and block blood flow to the lungs.
