Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images inside of the body that can be viewed on a monitor. It's a safe and painless way to view the health and development of a baby before birth. Ultrasound can also be used to view other areas of the body, including blood vessels, liver, bladder, kidneys and breasts.
Advancements in ultrasound technology include three-dimensional (3-D) ultrasound that formats the sound wave data into 3-D images.
Four-dimensional (4-D) ultrasound is 3-D ultrasound in motion. Ultrasound exams do not use radiation.
Current equipment at Moab Regional Hospital: GE Logic E9 with 3D/4D capabilities.
