This is the newest addition to our state-of-the-art technology. Ultrasound exams can be used to diagnosis a multitude of internal problems. This non-invasive technology uses sound waves to painlessly examine specific internal organs, primarily the heart and abdominal organs.
Dr. Bartus and Dr. Nelson have received extensive advanced training in ultrasonography.
Echocardiology is used to fully evaluate the heart to determine the source of murmurs and monitor cardiac health.
Abdominal ultrasonography is helpful to evaluate internal organs as well as obtain aspirates and biopsies of diseased organs. This can often help localize the disease source and lead to appropriate treatment.
Ultrasound exams are usually done under light sedation and well tolerated by our patients.
