Ultrasound

Ultrasound is a medical imaging technique using ultrasound waves to obtain diagnostic images from various parts of the body. The ultrasounds (high frequency sound vibration), emitted by a probe covered with a water-based gel, are transmitted in the tissues and are reflected as sound waves captured and analyzed using a computer to create images.

Ultrasound allows the investigation of the pathology of certain organs in the abdomen, the pelvic area, the thyroid, neck and breasts. It also allows a detailed study of superficial anatomical structures, muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints.

The Doppler provides information on the vascularization of various organs and explores the blood vessels, giving a picture of the vessels, coloured in red or blue, depending on the direction of the blood flow.

  • Abdominal
  • Pelvic
