Ultrasound

Ultrasound is a non-invasive image based on transmitting ultra-high frequency sound waves into the body and then receiving the returning echoes. Because the ultrasound images are captured in real time, they are able to show blood flowing through the vessels.

Ultrasound imaging is an important tool for your urologist to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of many different medical conditions involving the urinary tract, prostate and kidneys.  Another important use of urological ultrasound imaging is for biopsies because it can help a surgeon pinpoint the exact spot to draw tissue from for testing.
