Undergoing an Ultrasound
An ultrasound, sometimes referred to as a sonogram, is a test that uses high-speed sound waves to see your internal organs and the blood flow in vessels.
Types of Ultrasounds We Offer
An ultrasound can give your doctor almost the same information as an X-ray, but it doesn't expose you to harmful radiation. At UPMC Susquehanna we offer several different types of ultrasounds.
An abdominal ultrasound is a procedure using sound waves to image the abdominal area and evaluate the organs and blood vessels in that region of the body. Download the procedure information.
A non-invasive procedure using sound waves to image the aorta, the main blood vessel leading away from the heart.
A carotid ultrasound looks at the body's two carotid arteries (located on each side of the neck and carry blood from the heart to the brain) provides detailed pictures of these blood vessels and information about the blood flowing through them.
A duplex venous leg ultrasound is a procedure using sound waves to image the groin and legs and evaluate the blood vessels for blood clots.
Kidney or Retroperitoneal Ultrasound
A kidney or retroperitoneal limited ultrasound uses soundwaves to image the kidneys. Your doctor may recommend an abdominal ultrasound to help diagnose conditions such as abdominal pain, abnormal liver functions and stones in the gallbladder or kidney. Download the procedure information.
Obstetric Ultrasound is the use of ultrasound scans in pregnancy. It uses sound waves to produce pictures of a baby within a pregnant woman. Download the procedure information.
A pelvic ultrasound is a noninvasive test used to assess organs and structures within the female pelvis. The ultrasound allows visualization of the female pelvic organs and structures including the uterus, cervix, vagina, fallopian tubes and ovaries.
Scrotal ultrasound is an imaging test that looks at the scrotum. It's the primary method used to help evaluate disorders of the testicles, epididymis and scrotum.
A thyroid ultrasound is an imaging method to view the thyroid, a gland in the neck that regulates metabolism. It's commonly used to evaluate lumps or nodules found during a routine physical or other imaging exam.
An transvaginal ultrasound is a procedure using sound waves to image the pelvic organs.
