Ultrasound

Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to look at particular areas of the body. Examinations include obstetrics, gynecology, abdominal and vascular imaging. Allegiance Health ultrasound equipment, technologists and radiologists are accredited by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine in abdominal and obstetrical/gynecological services.

Here’s a tip for including more healthy foods in your diet. As you put your groceries away, chop some fruits and vegetables. Keep them in snack size bags in the refrigerator so they will be ready to grab on the go.
