ULTRASOUND

 

Ultrasound – also know as a sonogram - is widely used to capture real time images, allowing assessment of organs, vessels and other tissues, all without making an incision.

The technique uses high-frequency sound waves to capture the images and unlike other imaging techniques, ultrasound uses no x-rays. It is the gold standard to view a developing baby during pregnancy.

Coastal Medical Imaging utilises the highly advanced GE LE9 ultrasound scanner to obtain superior images for assessment and diagnosis. Our units are 3D musculoskeletal capable, which ensures the utmost accuracy to guide interventional procedures.
