Ultrasound and X-Ray
Radiographs (X-Rays) and diagnostic ultrasound
compliment each other diagnostically. Radiographs show silhouettes of
internal structures such as organs or bones much as you would look at a
shadow puppet on a wall. They give us a good idea of the general shape
and lay out of the object of interest.
Ultrasound lets us take tiny visual slices of the
organs so that we can see if there are any abnormalities internally that
could not be picked up on the radiograph. We can also do pregnancy
checks with one or both modalities depending on what is more appropriate
at the time.
At Adobe we offer complete radiographic services
including OFA and Penn Hip for hip certification.
Our rehabilitation center has Therapeutic
ultrasound which uses sound waves to produce heat and relaxation for
pain relief and healing.
