Ultrasound


Ultrasound is a technique that sends high frequency sound waves into the body. While ultrasound is often used by doctors and parents-to-be to monitor the health of an unborn baby, ultrasound is also useful in examining specific organs of the body as well as identifying blocages in arteries. High-frequency sound waves hit the target body part and bounce back as a series of echoes. An ultrasound scanner detects these echoes and analyzes the information to create an image.

In addition to diagnostic ultrasound procedures, Maury Regional Health facilities offer affordable ultrasound screenings, including vascular screenings to detect blockages in the circulatory system and organ screenings to detect stones and cancers. For more information, click here.

Ultrasound imaging is available at Maury Regional Medical Center, Spring Hill Imaging Center, Lewis Health Center,  Marshall Medical Center and Wayne Medical Center.

4D Ultrasound

4D ultrasound imaging, which allows expectant parents a chance to view their child in real-time with amazing clarity, is typically performed between 16 and 32 weeks of pregnancy. This optional exam is offered for a nominal fee at Wayne Medical Center and Maury Regional Medical Group Obstetrics & Gynecology. To schedule a 4D ultrasound appointment, contact one of these two locations.
