Chest Ultrasound Cost and Procedure Information

An Ultrasound, often called Sonography, is used to detect changes in appearance and function of organs, tissues, or abnormal masses, such as tumors as well as used to view blood flow through blood vessels. In an ultrasound examination, a transducer both sends the sound waves and records the echoing waves. When the transducer is pressed against the skin, it directs a stream of inaudible, high-frequency sound waves into the body. As the sound waves bounce off of internal organs, fluids and tissues, the sensitive microphone in the transducer records tiny changes in the sound's pitch and direction. These signature waves are instantly measured and displayed by a computer, which in turn creates a real-time picture on the monitor. Ultrasound exams do not use ionizing radiation (x-ray)
