Ultrasound imaging produces sound waves that are beamed into the body causing return echoes that are recorded to "visualize" structures beneath the skin. The ability to measure different echoes reflected from a variety of tissues allows a shadow picture to be constructed. The technology is especially accurate at seeing the interface between solid and fluid-filled spaces.
Your physician’s staff will you give you specific instructions to follow prior to your test. If you have any questions about the instructions, feel free to call the McBride Orthopedic Hospital Radiology Department at (405) 486-2146.
