Sonogram

Sonogram NYAt INTERCOUNTY OB/GYN in Ridgewood, NY, we look at thesonogram to examine the fetus. Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to look at organs and structures inside the body. And unlike x-rays, ultrasound does not involve exposure to radiation.

PROCEDURE:

During an ultrasound test, a special technician or doctor moves the transducer over part of your body. The transducer sends out sound waves which bounce off the tissues inside your body. The transducer also acquires the waves that bounce back. The images that we see from the sound waves are captured in thesonogram.

For more information about obtaining a sonogram, please call 718-497-3045 for a consultation.
