Ultrasound

In Calgary and Regina, our ultrasound exams use high frequency sound waves transmitted through a transducer (probe) to examine the organs, tissues, and blood vessels of the body.

Ultrasound is a safe diagnostic imaging exam which doesn’t use radiation or contrast dye to examine the structures of your body for abnormalities that could be associated with your symptoms or physical condition.

Our compassionate team uses advanced technology and patient-focused care to perform both general and specialized exams, including breast, echocardiography, musculoskeletal (joints and tissues), obstetrical, and vascular ultrasounds.

Our ultrasounds can be grouped into five main categories:

Breast Ultrasound

Breast ultrasounds are diagnostic imaging exams to investigate symptoms, like pain or lumps, or to examine a specific area of concern. They may also be recommended if you have high breast density. Learn more about Breast Imaging services.

ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY

Echocardiography may be recommended as part of a cardiac assessment to evaluate heart structure and function. Learn more

General Ultrasound

We offer a range of ultrasounds that assess such things as the function and structure of abdominal organs, hernias, the contents of lumps beneath the skin and the size and shape of your thyroid. Learn more.

Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

The Musculoskeletal Ultrasound assesses the tendons and ligaments that hold the muscles and bones in alignment. This ultrasound also evaluates the joint spaces for fluid or inflammation that may limit joint movement. Learn more.

Obstetrical Ultrasound

The Obstetrical Ultrasound determines the presence of an embryo, examines your fetus, looks at the position of the placenta and checks on the growth and well-being of your baby. Learn more

Vascular Ultrasound

A Vascular Ultrasound assesses the blood vessels of the body, which are called the veins and arteries. Learn more.

Our Technology

The Logiq EP ultrasound system from GE is a powerful and versatile imaging sytem that delivers extraordinary image quality for a variety of body types. Using a transducer, it produces sound waves and collects the echoes back from the body, which the computer then interprets as images. This system can also visualize blood flow.
