Ultrasound uses sound waves to create still pictures and live views of blood vessels, tissues, organs and other body parts. It is often used for obsteric exams, ultrasound-guided biopsy, ultrasound-guided cyst aspiration and more.
Due to the flexibility and portability of this technology, ultrasonic waves and interventional procedures such as biopsies are more frequently performed due to accuracy and improved patient care.
Ultrasound services at Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital are fully accredited by the American College of Radiology and the American Institute of Ultrasound Medicine. Our staff of board-certified technologists performed more than 24,000 ultrasound procedures each year.
