Ultrasound

The PPA Radiologists provide diagnostic ultrasound services with a team of highly skilled certified Sonographers. The Sonographers work under the supervision of the Radiologists to provide superior quality imaging. Our Ultrasound equipment offers the latest state-of-the-art technology. Images are automatically optimized due to revolutionary model-based exams, resulting in the technologist having to spend less time pressing buttons to achieve the desired image quality and more time on patient care.

Another advanced feature is Image Fusion, which enables faster identification of pathology by fusing previously acquired CT/MR/PET CT images with the live ultrasound study. The Image Fusion feature also results in x-ray dose reduction for patients and staff, as there is less need for repeat CT studies. A patient may have one CT of the abdomen, which can be loaded on to the system and fused with real time ultrasound to follow disease progression, evaluate stent implantation. Images are automatically optimized due to revolutionary model-based exams, resulting in the technologist having to spend less time pressing buttons to achieve the desired image quality and more time on patient care.

Additional specialty services include Sonohysterography, 3D Ultrasound, Musculoskeletal Ultrasound (for those patients who cannot have an MRI). We excell at Ultrasound guided Fine Needle Aspirations biopsy, for which our cytology team is present and checking the sample and verifying sufficient cells to make an accurate diagnosis.
