Ultrasound has become quite accurate in diagnosing many forms of disease.  It is also valuable in monitoring many types of conditions.  In many circumstances, the use of ultrasound may help to avoid more invasive procedures. Ultrasound is a non-invasive procedure with very little patient risk or discomfort. There may be times that even after we do an ultrasound here you may be referred to a local internist for a comprehensive ultrasound and consult.
