The Ultrasound Team
The ultrasound team in the radiology department uses ultrasound technology, or high frequency sound waves, to take pictures inside the body. Sometimes an ultrasound exam, also called a sonogram, is used to visualize areas of the body so a radiologist can perform an intervention or procedure. All ultrasounds are performed by board-certified sonographers and are interpreted by fellowship-trained, board-certified radiologists specialized in this field.
