Ultrasound

Illuminated panels are featured in a number of the imaging exam rooms, having a calming effect on patients during their procedures.

Ultrasound technologists at Alliance Community Hospital are primarily focused on patient reassurance and comfort. To help maintain a sense of privacy and security, the patient is typically allowed to wear their own clothing during the exam. As an extra comfort to the patient, ultrasound gel that has been warmed to a comparable temperature to that of the patient’s body temperature is used. Their goal is to make the experience as stress-free as possible, while also obtaining the necessary clinical information needed for the patient’s care.

Ultrasound (or "sonography") is a procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to show what is inside your body. Ultrasound is an excellent tool in several diagnostic situations, including: examining the fetus during pregnancy, visualizing certain gynecological functions in non-pregnant women, revealing information about tumors and cysts, evaluating the gallbladder and related organs and for non-invasive evaluation of vascular disease.

Since the body contains over 90% water, sound waves can be used in some parts of the body just as sonar is used in the ocean. Each time the sound hits a tissue, an echo is sent back. Sophisticated, high-speed computers can use these echoes to create an image of your internal organs. This results in a very detailed examination, which aids the physician in their diagnosis. Ultrasound technologists at Alliance Community Hospital are educated in optimizing the equipment capabilities.

An ultrasound examination is fast, with very little discomfort. No radiation or x-rays are necessary.

If you have any further questions, feel free to call our Ultrasound Department at 330-596-7796.
