Understanding Ultrasound Imaging

Ultrasound imaging can also be called sonography. It uses high-frequency sound waves to create detailed images of the inside of your body in real time. Unlike X-rays used to view bones and lungs, ultrasound is used to view muscles, tendons, and internal organs.

So, why might you need an ultrasound? It is a great non-invasive procedure used to diagnose pain, swelling, or infection, guide biopsies, and diagnose heart conditions. It’s also used to view the growing baby inside a pregnant person. It can even view blood flow to check for blood clots or vein malfunction. Many of our concierge medicine patients ask if it is painless. The answer is “Yes!” Ultrasound imaging is completely painless and non-invasive. 

Why Is Strata Med the Best Place to Get Your Ultrasound?

As usual, Strata Med is redefining patient care with these ultrasound services:

NON-INVASIVE DIAGNOSIS

As the leading concierge medicine practice in Colorado Springs, Strata Med offers the latest ultrasound technology. There is no discomfort or radiation involved with our musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSK US). It provides real-time imaging that makes it great for diagnosing and planning treatments.

REAL-TIME RESULTS

Want to know what is causing your issues immediately? The MSK US gives our providers real-time results. That makes for quicker decision-making and treatment planning.

COMPLETELY SAFE

The MSK US is safe for everyone. There is no ionizing radiation or invasive incisions. It’s also the perfect imaging alternative for people with pacemakers or other medical decisions that contradict other imaging modalities.

Ultrasound at Strata Is Changing the Game

As a concierge medicine office, everything we do comes from an integrated health approach. Here’s how we can use ultrasound imaging to better service your health needs.

Musculoskeletal Assessments

Are you an athlete recovering from an injury? Are you experiencing unexplained joint pain? Our musculoskeletal assessments are perfect for diagnosing the issue. Ultrasound imaging provides a high-definition picture of what is happening beneath your skin, allowing for fast treatment plans. 

Guided Procedures

During delicate procedures, such as biopsies, precision is essential. The same goes for joint injections and regenerative medicine. Ultrasound imaging helps guide these procedures for perfect outcomes. 

Comprehensive Care Integration

In line with our concierge medicine philosophy, we use ultrasound to improve your personalized health plan. It can complement other diagnostics or be used on its own.

Frequently Asked Questions About Ultrasound Imaging at Strata Med

Because we believe that you should have a comprehensive understanding of your health, in this section, our skilled specialists answer your most frequently asked questions.

During an ultrasound exam at Strata Med, you'll be asked to lie down on an examination table. We apply a small amount of gel to the area being examined to ensure good contact between the skin and the transducer. Remember, the procedure is entirely painless. Expect it to take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. We will be happy to explain the procedure once you arrive.

Yes. Ultrasound imaging is one of the safest diagnostic techniques available. That’s because it uses sound waves instead of radiation to produce images. It’s perfect for monitoring the developing baby in pregnant people or for those who need frequent imaging without exposure to ionizing radiation.

Ultrasounds are excellent for examining soft tissues within the body. These include muscles, blood vessels, and organs. That said, it’s not the best tool for imaging bones or areas with gas like the lungs. For that type of imaging, an MRI or CT scan might better suit your health needs.

It depends on the area of the body being studied. For example, if ultrasound imaging is being used to examine your abdomen, you might be asked to fast for a few hours before the procedure. Remember, we’ll give you specific instructions a few days before the procedure.
