ImageCare offers the most reliable ultrasound in West Orange, NJ, provided with care and attention to your specific needs. Choosing a diagnostic imaging center is one of the most important decisions you can make for your ultrasound procedure or Echocardiogram. As the most cost-effective medical imaging center, ImageCare welcomes patients to get the treatment they need.
Ultrasound uses sound waves to look at the internal organs of the body. A special instrument, called a transducer, has tiny crystals inside that, when excited by an electrical current, emit sound waves above the audible range of sound. The sound waves are sent into the body and bounce off internal organs. The transducer then picks up these rebounding sound waves and, with the aid of a computer, displays the returning sound waves as a picture representing the organ(s) of interest.
An ultrasound can look at solid internal organs (pancreas, spleen, liver), reproductive organs, thyroid, unborn babies, arteries, and veins, and can even image the skin and muscles on the arms and legs. Ultrasound is also used as a guidance tool: the technologist can show the doctor the exact location of an organ for biopsy with a needle.
