Ultrasound

Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves to look at particular areas of the body. Examinations include obstetrics, gynecology, abdominal and vascular imaging. Henry Ford 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 Henry Ford Allegiance Health include:

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

When recovering from surgery or an injury, prepare your home by placing often-used objects within easy reach, and keep a hard-backed chair in every room so you can sit while doing daily tasks.
