Ultrasound is a “real time” imaging technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to evaluate various body parts.  It has an excellent safety record using sound waves (no radiation) to produce images, unlike the ionizing radiation used for X-rays and CT scans.

Most outpatient US examinations are performed at NYU Langone Radiology. If the study is performed at the same time as a fluoroscopy study, it is performed at Tisch Hospital (2nd floor Radiology). Some bone and joint ultrasounds are performed at Center for Musculoskeletal Care .

General preparations:   Exams are easier to perform and yield higher quality images when patients are comfortable. Unless the study needs to be done with the patient fasting, please feed your baby/child before the study.  Pacifiers and other soothers such as favorite blankets, toys, or books will help distract your child and facilitate the exam.  A bottle to feed your baby during or after the study is also recommended.

Warm gel is applied to an ultrasound probe which is then placed on different parts of the patient’s abdomen to image the abdominal organs.

Preparation:  Preferably patients will be fasting for 3-4 hours prior to the study to optimize evaluation of the gallbladder.  However, the study can be performed without fasting, especially if gallbladder abnormalities are not suspected.

This procedure is commonly performed in the setting of pelvic pain, early or late puberty, or menstrual irregularities.

The ultrasound probe is used to take images of the uterus and ovaries.  Because this exam may require the technologist to exert pressure to visualize the pelvic organs, it may be mildly uncomfortable for some patients.

Preparation:  This study is performed with a full bladder, which is necessary to visualize the pelvic organs. Please drink several glasses of water before the study and do not empty bladder prior to the exam.

In the outpatient setting, this procedure is commonly performed to assess an enlarging head circumference in an infant or to follow premature infants as they grow.

The ultrasound probe is used to image the brain through the “soft spot” in the skull.  The study can only be performed while the soft spot is still open, usually until about age one year.

This procedure is commonly performed to assess for a condition called developmental dysplasia of the hip, which may be suspected on physical exam by your pediatrician.  There are also many risk factors for this disorder which include breech position during pregnancy and strong family history.

The ultrasound probe is used to image the hips with the baby lying on his or her back. The examination can only be performed in younger infants, ideally less than 7 months, because the hip bones in older infants are too dense and prevent the ultrasound beam from visualizing the hip joint.

This procedure is commonly performed to assess the location of the end of the spinal cord, which can extend too low in some situations, especially if the baby has an unusual birthmark on their lower back or a deep dimple between the buttocks.

The ultrasound probe is used to image the spine with the baby positioned on their belly. The study can only be performed in younger infants, until the bones of the spine become too dense, usually up until about 3 months of age.

This procedure is commonly performed to evaluate an enlarged  thyroid gland and abnormal thyroid hormone levels.

This study is performed with the patient lying on their back and the ultrasound probe placed on the neck.  A towel may be placed behind the neck to extend the neck and ease imaging of the thyroid gland.
