Carmichael Imaging also offers advanced digital ultrasound. Digital ultrasound simply provides a more detailed scan which enables physicians to more accurately diagnose patients. Ultrasound uses sound waves to create images of the inside of the body, including the abdomen, breasts, female pelvis, scrotum, thyroid and the vascular system. Ultrasound is also used to track fetal development. It is non-invasive, safe and painless. You will be asked to lie on an exam table. Warm gel is applied to the area to be examined, and a scanning instrument is rubbed across it to create an image on a computer screen. The entire exam usually takes about 15 minutes.
