Ultrasound uses sound waves bouncing off of internal organs to allows us to look INSIDE an organ for changes in structure or even texture. This allows us to see the organs functioning in real time and determine if they are working properly. This is a valuable diagnostic tool to look for changes going on INSIDE an organ or how a organ is working (ie. heart) . It also allows us to take needle biopsy samples that previously would have required surgery.
The training to perform these advanced examinations take months to learn and several years to perfect. Dr. Kevin has been performing ultrasound exams for over 13-years.
