Now Offering Ultrasound Imaging Services


What is ultrasound?

It uses sound waves to create a 3-dimentional image of a particular area of the body in real-time. Unlike other imaging methods, which have high doses of radiation that can contribute to cancer, or are magnetized and exclude folks who have certain implanted metallic devices, ultrasound has virtually ZERO radiation, and ZERO effects on metal.

How can I get an ultrasound?

An ultrasound study is ordered by a healthcare provider, whenever clinically indicated by a patient’s signs and symptoms. Monthly, our ultrasound services are present at each of our locations, to offer patients convenient, ready access to this novel imaging service without the added inconvenience of going to a different facility.


How much does it cost?

Depending on the indication to obtain an ultrasound, insurance often foots the bill, so there’s minimal cost to our patients. This information is priceless when we need to evaluate internal bodily structures, to help us as healthcare providers establish early diagnosis and prompt treatment. It’s just one of the ways we at Burgaw Medical Center and Hampstead Family Medicine strive to provide our patients with resources that optimize their health.
