ultrasound.jpg (33 KB)Ultrasound is a medical procedure using high frequency sound waves. There is no radiation used in Ultrasound.  Devices we call “Probes” send and receive these sound waves producing real time pictures.   These pictures include various body parts, organs, and blood flow. 

An ultrasound exam takes on average 30 minutes but can take up to 2.5 hours

At Women’s College Hospital we offer:

  • all general ultrasounds (abdomen, pelvis)
  • obstetrical imaging
