Ultrasound Services In New Jersey
At Hunterdon Radiological Associates, we provide noninvasive, painless, and safe ultrasound procedures for our patients. An ultrasound works by using sound waves to produce clear pictures of the inside of the body. These pictures are called sonograms.
Although the definitions of ultrasound and sonogram are technically different, as ultrasound refers to the procedure as a whole and sonogram refers to the image it produces, the terms are often used interchangeably in the medical field.

What Is Ultrasound Used For?
Ultrasound is a useful tool for radiologists to help them see what is going on inside your body. They can be used to diagnose the underlying causes of pain, swelling, and infection within organs, including the gallbladder, liver, and pancreas. It’s also used in pregnant women to examine the baby, especially concerning their development, brain, and hips. Sonograms may also display the infant’s position inside the uterus and indicate whether triplets or twins are present.
Other uses for ultrasound include:
- Finding breast abnormalities
- Assessing problems with the male reproductive system
- Detecting potential tumors within internal organs
Ultrasounds can only be performed on internal body structures that reflect sound waves. Organs that contain solid tissue all qualify for ultrasound procedures.
