UltrasoundUltrasound, or sonography, uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the body without the need for ionizing radiation.
Because of their safety and efficacy, doctors order ultrasound tests frequently. Ultrasound exams at DIOS are read by a board-certified radiologist, a physician specially trained to interpret ultrasound studies.
The nature of ultrasound also lends to its common use in women's imaging, whether examining a developing pregnancy, the breast, or the pelvis. Its real-time nature also allows for effective guidance in injection, aspiration, and biopsy procedures.
The Advantages of 3D Imaging
Revolutionary three- and four-dimensional ultrasound at DIOS provides faster and more detailed images to achieve better clinical accuracy and patient outcomes. The fourth dimension adds a time factor, or motion, with exceptionally high resolution. The value of this added dimension becomes clear when imaging moving objects like a beating heart or a fetus moving within the uterus.
Unlike two- and three-dimensional diagnostic processes, 4D allows you to visualize internal anatomy moving in real-time. It also offers greater accuracy in ultrasound-guided biopsies by visualizing needle movements in real-time and in all three planes.
