In-Clinic Ultrasound

In-Clinic Ultrasound Services

Ultrasound radiology, commonly referred to as ultrasonography or simply ultrasound, is a widely used diagnostic imaging technique in clinics and medical facilities. It utilizes high-frequency sound waves to create images of the inside of the body.

The Principle of Ultrasound in a
Clinical Setting

Ultrasound works on the principle of sound wave reflection. A transducer emits high-frequency sound waves into the body, which bounce off internal structures and tissues. The returning echoes are then captured by the transducer and converted into images by a computer.

The Procedure

During an ultrasound examination, a gel is applied to the skin to ensure good contact between the skin and the transducer. The transducer is then moved over the area of interest, sending and receiving sound waves to create real-time images displayed on a monitor.

What is Available at Dr.Rogers Centers?


Abdominal Imaging

It is used to examine an organ such as the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, kidneys, and spleen for conditions like gallstones, tumors, or cysts.


Cardiac Imaging

Ultrasound can assess the structure and function of the heart, helping diagnose conditions such as heart valve disorders, heart defects, and pericardial effusion.


Vascular Imaging

It's used to evaluate blood flow through arteries and veins, detect blockages or narrowing (stenosis), and assess for conditions like deep vein thrombosis or arterial plaque buildup.


Musculoskeletal Imaging

Ultrasound can visualize muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and soft tissues, aiding in the diagnosis of conditions such as tendonitis, muscle tears, and joint diffusions.


Thyroid Imaging

It's used to assess thyroid nodules, determine their characteristics (solid or cystic), and guide needle aspiration biopsies for further evaluation.

Advantages of In-Clinic Ultrasound

  • It's not invasive and does not use ionizing radiation, making it safe for pregnant women and children.
  • It provides real-time imaging, allowing dynamic assessment of moving structures like the heart or fetus.
  • It's relatively cost-effective compared to other imaging modalities like MRI or CT scans.
  • It can be performed in the clinic, making it convenient for point-of-care evaluations.

At Dr. Rodger Centers, the ultrasound is performed by trained technologists, and the results are interpreted by radiologists to aid in diagnosis and treatment planning. It's a versatile tool that plays a crucial role in various medical specialties due to its safety, accessibility, and effectiveness in visualizing internal structures.
