General Ultrasound

In Calgary and Regina, Mayfair Diagnostics performs abdominal, pelvic, kidney and bladder, thyroid, and many other ultrasounds. These exams might be requested to evaluate the internal abdominal and pelvic organs and other tissues when symptoms of pain, swelling, or abnormal laboratory tests are present.

An abdominal ultrasound examines the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, spleen, and kidneys, as well as the larger blood vessels such as the aorta and inferior vena cava. A pelvic ultrasound assesses the uterus, ovaries, prostate, and bladder. Ultrasound can also be used to examine the thyroid and adjacent tissue in the neck, as well as the testicles and scrotum.

Our Technology

The Logiq EP ultrasound system from GE is a powerful and versatile imaging sytem that delivers extraordinary image quality for a variety of body types.
