Ultrasound (or Sonography) uses high-frequency sound waves to create an image.
This technique does not involve ionizing radiation. Since images are obtained in real time, our radiologists are able to observe motion and consequently assess function as well as anatomy. Common examinations include evaluation of blood vessels, gallbladder, kidneys, liver, spleen, pancreas, uterus and ovaries, urinary bladder, thyroid, fetus, musculoskeletal structures, and heart.
Our subspecialized physicians are available to provide expert interpretations at 80 locations across West Michigan; all accredited by the American College of Radiology.
Our Ultrasound Imaging team is board-certified and has 416 combined years of experience. In 2016, our radiologists read and interpreted ultrasound studies for over 91,000 patients. This experience speaks to accurate, high-quality results for our patients.
