What Is An Ultrasound?

An ultrasound uses ultrasonic sound waves to produce images of body structures on a screen. This imaging allows medical professionals to note important information that can impact your health and wellness.  

What Will An Ultrasound Tell Me?

An ultrasound has the ability to give information on a pregnancy that is important for your options and next steps. This imaging procedure will tell you:
