Diagnostic Ultrasound

 

ULTRASOUND SCREENING

We understand that sometimes we put others in front of our own needs. But we also know that having a healthy body enables us to enjoy more life experiences that are important to us. Our screenings allow for patients to be proactive about their health. The preventative health screenings we conduct go beyond regular checkups to provide you and with valuable information about your health. You’ll be able to get information you need to take action to prevent chronic disease before it’s too late.

In addition to medical laboratory screenings that we perform we offer ultrasound assessment of your body.

These screening assessments can help us easily identify risk for stroke, heart attack or liver disease.

Ultrasound can show the size, shape, and movement of the heart's valves and chambers as well as the flow of blood through the heart. Echocardiography may show such abnormalities as poorly functioning heart valves or damage to the heart tissue. Book Now
