Rumford Hospital Offers Ultrasound Imaging Services

Ultrasound exams are a type of medical imaging that use sound waves to help “see” images within the body.

This painless procedure is also known as a sonogram. During the procedure a probe is lightly pressed against the body; sound waves pass through the body and their echo creates the image.

We perform the following sonograms at Rumford Hospital:

  • Abdominal imaging
  • Pelvic imaging
  • Transvaginal imaging of the pelvis
  • Soft tissue neck exams to assess the thyroid or parotids, or soft tissue masses
  • Carotid exams to assess the blood flow through the carotid
    veins to look for vein narrowing or stenosis
  • Upper and lower extremities, checking for deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Breast imaging, as a follow-up to mammograms or exams that detect a mass. (Often a benign cyst.)
  • Obstetrical exams to assess fetal development (size of the baby.)
