Anchorage’s experienced, state-of-the-art ultrasound for accurate diagnoses.
Ultrasound is an essential tool in doctors’ diagnostic tool boxes, and it has been for decades.

This is due in part to the advances in ultrasound technology that have improved resolution, definition and image uniformity. Also, ultrasound is a much less costly way to acquire detailed images of internal anatomy.

Also, ultrasound acquires images with a simple handheld transducer and a small bedside unit, not an imposing, noisy, large machine. Perhaps most importantly, ultrasound uses safe, high-frequency sound waves rather than the ionized radiation used in CT or X-rays, which can present a health hazard.
