What is Ultrasound?

Ultrasound is a medical imaging technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of internal organs and tissues. Unlike X-rays and CT scans, ultrasound is non-invasive and does not use ionizing radiation.

Who needs Ultrasound?

Ultrasound can be used to examine many parts of the body, including the abdomen, pelvis, breasts, heart, and blood vessels. It is a safe and effective way to diagnose and monitor pregnancy, as well as a wide range of other medical conditions.

What does Ultrasound involves?

During an ultrasound, a technician will apply a clear gel to your skin and use a handheld device called a transducer to emit high-frequency sound waves into your body. The sound waves bounce off internal organs and tissues and are then picked up by the transducer, which sends the information to a computer to produce images.

Ultrasound Preparations

No special preparation is usually required for an ultrasound. You may be asked to wear a gown or change into a gown, and to remove any jewelry or other objects that may interfere with the exam.

Are there any risks?

Ultrasound is generally considered safe and has no known harmful effects. There is no exposure to ionizing radiation during an ultrasound, making it a safer option than X-rays or CT scans.

How Much Does Ultrasound Scan Usually Cost?

At St Mary Open MRI, we believe that high-quality medical diagnostics should be accessible and affordable for everyone.

Self-Pay Ultrasound

Our self-pay fee for an Ultrasound scan starts from $200 and may vary depending upon the scan type and intensity.
