An important component of your pediatric urology team at Chesapeake Urology For Kids are the pediatric ultrasound specialists.
Ultrasound is a painless imaging technology that uses high frequency sound waves to view internal organs and produce pictures of the body. Unlike other imaging technology such as X-rays, MRI or CT scans, an ultrasound does not use radiation to produce the images. Ultrasound is used to diagnose a variety of conditions of the urinary tract, bladder and kidneys in babies and children.
At Chesapeake Urology For Kids, our ultrasound specialists have years of experience in this diagnostic field. They understand that kids have unique needs when it comes to urologic care and are dedicated to putting your child at ease. Our specialists will walk your child through the entire process in simple terms they can understand so that they are comfortable before the ultrasound test even begins.
