Ultrasound: Overview

Ultrasound imaging, also called Ultrasound scanning or Sonography uses high-frequency sound waves to produce precise images of structures within the body.

Registered sonographers conduct ultrasound scans. Sonographers are required to obtain certification through the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS), and are required to maintain membership in the Canadian Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (CSDMS), which promotes a high level of professional standard of practice in Canada. Our ultrasound services include obstetric, gynaecologic, abdominal, small parts, musculoskeletal and vascular.

All ultrasounds require an appointment to complete the procedure.
