Ultrasound uses ultra high frequency sound waves to produce an image of body organs, blood vessels, muscles, tendons, ligaments or fetus. The image is refreshed over 30 times per second during live scanning. The professional performing the scan is known as a Sonographer or Ultrasound Tech and all of our technologists are members in good standing of the College of Medical Radiological and Imaging Technologists of Ontario (CMRITO).
We provide services in Obstetrics through the Family Prenatal Centre which includes: dating scans, NT screening, anatomy scans, BPP, growth and other miscellaneous scans. We are considered the high risk center for this region. We pioneered 4D (live 3D) imaging in the region and continue to offer the service. All obstetric and gynecological exams are reviewed and interpreted by a Obstetrician with special training.
We are also the pioneers of MSK (musculoskeletal) scanning of the tendons, ligaments, muscles and bursa associated with the following joints: shoulders, knees, elbows, wrists/hands, fingers, ankle/feet, toes, and hips.
Other ultrasound services include, abdomen, urinary tract, thyroid, scrotal, breast and vascular. All other tests are reviewed and interpreted by a Radiologist.
This service is located at both Thunder Bay Medical Centre site and the 10th Ave location.
