Ultrasound

Ultrasound imaging, or ultrasonography, is a safe diagnostic exam that uses high frequency sound waves transmitted through a transducer (probe) to examine the organs, tissues and blood vessels of the body.

Your exam will assess the structures for abnormalities that could be associated with your symptoms or physical condition. It doesn’t use radiation or contrast dye.

Our ultrasounds can be grouped into five main categories:

Breast Imaging

Breast Imaging ultrasounds assess the breast for abnormalities. It is requested when you, or your doctor, feel a lump or you are having pain and tenderness that is not usual for you. Learn more about Breast Imaging exams.

General Ultrasound

We offer a range of ultrasounds that assess such things as the function and structure of abdominal organs, hernias, the contents of lumps beneath the skin and the size and shape of your thyroid. Learn more about General Ultrasound exams.

**Mayfair also performs Echocardiograms to assess heart structure and function. Learn more here.

Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

The Musculoskeletal Ultrasound assesses the tendons and ligaments that hold the muscles and bones in alignment. This ultrasound also evaluates the joint spaces for fluid or inflammation that may limit joint movement. Learn more about Musculoskeletal Ultrasound exams.

Obstetrical Ultrasound

The Obstetrical Ultrasound determines the presence of an embryo, examines your fetus, looks at the position of the placenta and checks on the growth and well-being of your baby. Learn more about Obstetrical Ultrasound exams.

Vascular Ultrasound

A Vascular Ultrasound assesses the blood vessels of the body, which are called the veins and arteries. Learn more about Vascular Ultrasound exams.

Our Technology

The Logiq EP ultrasound system from GE is a poweful and versatile imaging sytem that delivers extraordinary image quality for a variety of body types. Using a transducer, it produces sound waves and collects the echoes back from the body, which the computer then interprets as images. This system can also visualize blood flow.
