Ultrasound Services

An ultrasound utilizes high-frequency sound waves to create images that allow physicians and surgeons to examine organs and systems within a patient’s body. Unlike a CT scan or an X-ray, an ultrasound does not use radiation to obtain the images. (1) An ultrasound may be used to evaluate breast lumps, evaluate the thyroid gland, check for gallbladder disease, or even evaluate muscles and tendons. (2)

Raleigh Adult Medicine offers in-office ultrasound services. During an ultrasound, you will lie on a table and a clear gel will be applied to the area being examined. This gel assists the transition of the sound waves. A handheld probe, called a transducer, will be moved over the area to be examined. This transducer sends high frequency sound waves through body tissue and when the sound waves reflect off of structures such as organs or bones, it creates an image that is then interpreted by the physician.

BLUE RIDGE ROAD CONSTRUCTION PROJECT: The City of Raleigh began a construction project in June to widen Blue Ridge Road. Most of the erosion control and tree protection is now in place, and clearing crews are working on tree and brush removal. During this work, there may be lane closures and traffic delays. Please allow yourself extra time to ensure you are on time for your appointment!  All construction updates can be accessed via "Blue Ridge Road Widening Project."
