Diagnostic Ultrasound is a non-invasive medical imaging technology that uses high frequency sound waves to form a structural image of your heart and valves. Information obtained from these images is utilized by your physician to provide accurate diagnoses and treatment. Ultrasound technology, when compared to other imaging modalities like MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) and CT (Computed Tomography), is an affordable non-invasive procedure that does not utilize magnetic fields or ionizing radiation. Mount Sinai Heart New York Palm Beach provides several different types of ultrasound including Transthoracic Echocardiogram, Transesophageal Echocardiogram (TEE), Stress Echocardiogram, Abdominal Aorta, Carotid Artery, and Peripheral Vascular (Venous and Arterial).
