If needed, our comprehensive urgent care centers can provide clean bandaging and temporary splints until you can see a specialist.
What Can Ultrasounds Show?
Ultrasound technology can be used to identify and diagnose a wide range of ailments and injuries including, but not limited to, changes in the appearance of your organs, tissues, and vessels in order to detect abnormal masses such as cysts or tumors. This allows doctors to pinpoint the cause of your pain, identify swelling in the body, and is commonly used to examine & monitor fetuses in pregnant women.
Health Issues Detected with Ultrasound
Certain types of ultrasounds can capture a patient’s blood flow. In some cases, increased blood flow can indicate an infection.
Ultrasounds that detect blood vessels can also find narrowed vessels or blockages to blood flow.
Tumors and Cysts
An ultrasound can find dense areas of tissue such as tumors or cysts. It shows cysts differently from tumors to help your doctor make a diagnosis.
Fibroids and other conditions related to the female reproductive system show up on ultrasounds. An ultrasound can help doctors find the source of pelvic pain.
Doctors sometimes use ultrasound to detect thyroid issues such as growths or abnormal activity. The test will also help them determine if a thyroid nodule needs a biopsy.
Ultrasounds Can Produce Images of Your Organs + Body Parts Including:
- Digestive System
- Heart & Blood Vessels
- Scrotum (testicles)
- Soft-tissue Injuries
- Male/Female reproductive organs
- Muscles, joints, and tendons
