Ultrasound imaging uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the inside of your body. It is safe, simple and painless. No radiation is involved, and radiologists and physicians can see the images in real time.
Ultrasound is commonly used to evaluate the thyroid gland, breasts, abdominal and pelvic organs, testes and blood flow in arteries and veins.
For our ultrasound patients, Northwest Radiology offers high-quality, affordable imaging by a team committed to providing the best patient experience. We are here to help.
