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.

Ultrasound-guided procedures performed at Allegiance Health include:

  • Liver biopsies
  • Paracentesis
  • Breast biopsies
  • Breast fine needle aspirations
  • Thyroid fine needle aspirations

Colon cancer screens can prevent colon cancer by finding and removing growths before they turn into cancer. Screens also find colon cancer early, while it’s easiest to treat.
