Unlike with X-rays, there is no ionizing radiation with this test. The ultrasound machine produces high-frequency sound waves that reflect off the internal organs or tissues to make a picture.
As one of the largest paediatric sonography centres in North America, our team of ultrasonographers, radiologists and support staff are dedicated to the provision of excellent clinical service.
