If your doctor sends you for a high resolution ultrasound, do you know what that entails? At Queens Dynamic Medical Imaging, we want all of our patients to know what procedure they will be getting done so they can feel relaxed and taken care of at our facility. In regards to high resolution ultrasounds, there are a few scenarios in which your doctor would need this done, as well as few things you need to know before going in for one. Here is a brief overview of this type of imaging and the steps you need to take to prepare.
What is a High Resolution Ultrasound?
An ultrasound, which is also known as sonography, uses high-pitched sound waves to echo throughout the body and produce images that show those echoes. Ultrasounds usually only organs and specific tissues in your body, which are often why they are used in pregnant women for fetal imaging. However, ultrasounds can also be used to provide imaging for certain conditions in your heart, blood vessels, thyroid, and reproductive organs of both males and females.
A high resolution ultrasound can be used for all of the above conditions, including fetal imaging. The difference between a low and high resolution ultrasound is the clarity of the picture. Many people prefer to have high resolution ultrasounds done for fetal imaging since it can give the parents a more unobstructed view of their baby’s features.
