Latest technology - 4D and 3D ultrasound
Optima Diagnostic Imaging takes pride in providing the latest diagnostic equipment in partnership with top medical technicians fully trained and up to date on the latest improvements in the equipment. In this way, they provide top tier 4d and 3d ultrasound in Los Angeles many thousands of times each year.
The technician administering an ultrasound uses a small handheld transducer that delivers sound waves into the body. The sound waves return to the device and are delivered into a computer, which interprets the waves into a viewable image. These images provide valuable data concerning internal organs and structures. Because an ultrasound utilizes sound waves instead of radiation, it is an entirely safe procedure.
There is virtually no preparation necessary to administer this type of imaging examination. There is no pain involved, only the administration of some gel to improve the clarity of the image.
