Atlas Diagnostic Imaging




Ultrasounds scanning gives a clear picture of soft tissues that do not show up well on x-ray images.

Ultrasound imaging, also known as ultrasound scanning or sonography, is a procedure that involves exposing a region of the body to high-frequency sound waves in order to create images of the inside of the body. Ionizing radiation is not utilized in ultrasound tests (as used in x-rays). Ultrasound scans can depict the structure and movement of the body’s interior organs, as well as blood moving through blood veins in the body, because they are caught in real time.

If your are seeking for the Ultrasound center, then Atlas Diagnostic Imaging, one of the best ultrasound clinic in Fairview Heights and St. Louis, have got you covered.

How does an ultrasound scanning work?
A transducer, often known as a probe, is a device that a healthcare professional uses to transmit sound waves across or into a bodily opening during an ultrasound. Your skin will have a small coating of gel applied by the healthcare professional in order for the ultrasound waves to pass through the gel and into your body from the transducer.

The probe sends high-frequency sound waves into the tissues of your body by converting electrical current into them. You can’t hear the sound waves. Sound waves go through your body and return to the probe, where they are transformed into electrical impulses. Then, a computer transforms the electrical signal pattern into nearby computer screens showing real-time photos or videos.


How to prepare for ultrasound scanning?

  • Avoid smoking and chewing gum for six hours before the scan.
  • Your healthcare professional will advise you not to eat or drink for a specific amount of time before ultrasound test, such as an abdominal or gallbladder ultrasound.

  • Not to eat and drink upto 12 hours before your ultrasound test.
  • Up to six glasses of water should be consumed two hours before the assessment.
