Medical Imaging Procedures
Ultrasound uses reflected sound echoes to study and characterize internal structures and tissues. During pregnancy, a growing fetus can be imaged through ultrasound, without exposing the growing baby to ionizing radiation. Ultrasound is also an excellent tool for examining the heart because it is a "non-invasive" (i.e., not traumatic to the body) and can reveal more about heart function than conventional x-ray studies.
Ultrasound can also reveal information about the shape, texture, and composition of tumors and cysts. Kennedy's specialized equipment uses raw data digital processing throughout the entire ultrasound study - from the acquisition of raw data to digital viewing - and finally to the storage of data in its purest, digital form. Storing data in its original fidelity preserves image quality.
