ULTRASOUND / DIAGNOSTIC SONOGRAPHY

 
The Diagnostic Sonography (Ultrasound) Section provides world class patient care, research, and teaching at the Vanderbilt University Hospital and Vanderbilt Clinic. 
 
Our sonographers are experienced and compassionate and use state-of-the-art equipment including the latest in 3D, color Doppler, and innovative techniques.  Our sonologists are recognized experts and provide instruction to radiology and Ob/Gyn residents, medical students, and sonographers.  Our physicians also participate in training of the Women's Imaging fellows.
 
We also have a Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program that takes advantage of the wide range of procedures and environments in which sonography is practiced at Vanderbilt. 
 
Our section is involved in several clinical trials and has extensive experience in both clinical and basic science investigations.  Clinically, we are involved in NIH/NCI sponsored research in the use of microbubble contrast for the early detection of ovarian cancer with transvaginal sonography.  We are also evaluating the use of microbubble contrast for enhanced sonographic evaluation of focal liver lesions.  In basic research, our group is investigating the use of microbubble research for assessment of tumor response.
 
Clinically, we provide expedient and accurate assessments of a variety of obstetric, gynecologic, abdominal, vascular and endocrine applications.  We also provide guided biopsy and intra-operative assistance.  Our inpatient facility provides 24/7 coverage.
