Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to "echo" off the body and create an image on a computer screen. Ultrasound can be used to look at various organs including the liver, spleen, kidneys, brain, hips and female pelvis.
Thompson Health’s ultrasound equipment produces highly detailed three-dimensional, real-time images of internal organs, and remarkably sharp images of babies. Non-invasive peripheral vascular equipment (a less-invasive alternative to angiography) measures blood flow in patients to diagnose blockages.
Thompson’s OB ultrasound unit works with the Maternal Fetal Medicine physicians (Perinatologists) at Strong Memorial Hospital. They have been reading ultrasounds and coming on site to Thompson for many years, however with the addition of the OB/GYN ultrasound suite at Canandaigua Medical Group (CMG) in March 2019, the Perinatologists are here more often, making the CMG site the area’s only high risk site.
Thompson has two high risk sonographers at the CMG site who offer:
Thompson’s ultrasound suite at CMG also offers pelvic ultrasounds. These exams are read by the radiologists at F.F. Thompson Hospital.
