Ultrasound


An ultrasound, or sonogram, uses painless, high-frequency sound waves to allow doctors to examine organs and tissues. Similar to sonar or radar, the waves reflect back to create an image of the organ or other structure being examined. Unlike an X-ray, an ultrasound does not require any exposure to radiation. Doppler ultrasound can measure the speed and other characteristics of blood flow. Duplex ultrasound combines both traditional ultrasound and Doppler ultrasound.

accredited by the American College of RadiologyAt Lancaster General Health, Ultrasounds are performed by technologists certified by the American Registry of Medical Sonographers (RDMS).  In addition, all sites within the system are accredited by the American College of Radiology.

  • Abdominal organs and blood vessels
