What Is Ultrasound? 

Ultrasound is a safe, painless, and instant way to see the structures of your body using sound waves. Doctors use an ultrasound gel to move a small transducer probe over your body to capture images of your bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerve structures in real-time. This is an effective diagnostic tool to help your physician examine the condition of your musculoskeletal system.

We offer onsite ultrasound services in Portsmouth, NH, and York, ME. Our providers use ultrasound to help make accurate diagnoses, most often related to deep bruising, twists, sprains, breaks, or conditions of tendonitis. While more advanced imaging technology is available, our Seacoast-based team of experts believes ultrasounds are an effective and affordable entry-level method to find and track many injuries.
