Ultrasound Imaging

Carle Richland Memorial Hospital offers a full range of Women’s ultrasound studies, using sonography (or sound waves) to detect medical conditions and to monitor fetal development.  Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, they can show the structure and movement of the body's internal organs, as well as blood flowing through blood vessels.  Carle Richland Memorial Hospital has a sophisticated 4-dimensional Ultrasound Unit.  Fetal ultrasounds produce amazing images allowing expectant parents to see detailed images of their baby before it is born.  Other ultrasound studies commonly performed for women include:  Breast ultrasounds, gynecological ultrasounds, kidney and bladder ultrasounds, echo / cardiac ultrasounds, and vascular ultrasounds.
