Ultrasound

Port Perry Imaging offers a wide array of ultrasound examinations

Your ultrasound images can be provided to you on a CD because they are captured digitally.  If required, you will be able to take your ultrasound images to your referring physician or specialist.  Obstetric patients can be provided with a copy of their baby’s images on CD for a nominal charge.


What is Ultrasound First?

Ultrasound First is an endeavor devoted to education and increasing awareness of the effectiveness of ultrasound in enhancing patient care.

For appropriate clinical conditions, ultrasound offers clear safety and economic advantages over radiographic exams, and yet evidence suggests that ultrasound is underutilized.

Many clinicians are unaware of the range of conditions for which ultrasound first is an established guideline, and the gap only grows larger as research extends ultrasound’s diagnostic value.

Consider the benefits…

Safe – Ultrasound emits NO ionizing radiation. It may be all you need.
Effective – Ultrasound has comparable or superior diagnostic capability in a growing number of imaging scenarios making it the smart diagnostic choice.
Affordable – Ultrasound is an inexpensive and portable tool that can provide faster diagnosis. Image more for less.
