Ultrasound Imaging Services

Northwestern Medicine mother during ultrasound smilingFrom watching a baby in the womb to detecting heart problems, Northwestern Medicine Diagnostic Imaging brings you the latest advances in ultrasound to meet a wide range of imaging needs.

Ultrasound (also called a sonogram) is a quick and easy diagnostic technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the organs and systems within the body.

These sound waves reflect off of body structures and are analyzed by a computer to create a two-dimensional picture. Ultrasound images are often a valuable first step in diagnosis.
