A Major and Minor Emergency Diagnostic Aid
Ultrasounds have become synonymous with pregnancy and fetal development. However, an ultrasound has many uses besides monitoring a baby’s health. It can also be used to diagnose other medical conditions where an internal picture of the body is needed. At Sun City Emergency Room, our doctors use ultrasounds for help diagnosing the cause of a major or minor emergency. This non-invasive procedure can show abnormalities and other causes of abdominal pain, joint pain, and more.
