General Ultrasound

General Ultrasound Procedures

During an ultrasound, also referred to as a sonogram, one of our technologists applies ultrasound gel to the area(s) being studied.  Then she gently slides a transducer over the area(s).  The ultrasound transducer generates high-frequency sound waves to produce digital images of  the area(s) being studied.

Ultrasounds are quick, generally painless, and safe for nearly everyone because no radiation is emitted.  In addition to diagnosing the source of pain, swelling, and/or infection; ultrasounds are frequently used throughout pregnancy to monitor fetal development.

Bergen Imaging Center offers a number of specialized ultrasounds, including: Abdominal Ultrasounds, Pelvic/Transabdominal and Transvaginal Ultrasounds, First Trimester Obstetrical Ultrasounds, Renal and Bladder Ultrasounds and Thyroid Ultrasounds.
