EPIQ 5 is the new direction for premium ultrasound, featuring an uncompromised level of clinical performance to meet the challenges of today’s most demanding general imaging practices. Philips exclusive PureWave crystal technology is clinically proven to improve penetration in difficult-to-image patients. The pure, uniform PureWave crystals are up to 85% more efficient than conventional materials, resulting in exceptional performance. This technology allows for improved penetration and excellent detailed resolution. Ultrasound is a safe, non-invasive imaging technique that uses sound waves that bounce off of internal tissues to produce images of the organs in the body. Since no radiation is involved, there are no documented risks associated with ultrasound. With our state-of-the-art equipment and highly skilled sonographers, we ensure that you get the best exam possible.
Upon arrival you will be registered and checked in, you will then be greeted by the ultrasound technologist also known as a sonographer. You will be brought into the Ultrasound room. The Sonographer will explain the procedure, as well as, answer any questions that you have prior to getting started with the procedure. During the exam, the application of a clear gel and the use of a handheld wand, called a transducer will be moved over the area being examined. You may be asked to hold your breath or even to turn on your side during the exam.
The average Ultrasound exam takes about 30 - 45 minutes. You should expect to be in our department for about 1 hour. You have no restrictions after having your Ultrasound and can go about your normal daily activities.
We are open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please call 530.529.XRAY (9729) to make an appointment.
If you have a question about your exam, please call our department at 530.529.XRAY (9729)
