What is a sonogram?
A sonogram is a diagnostic image produced during an ultrasound. A noninvasive test, an ultrasound can be performed to confirm pregnancy, certain diseases (like cancer), or a range of gynecologic issues. The device we use at our Denton South office in Denton, TX utilizes gentle sound waves to produce a precise image of your abdominal area.
At Health Services of North Texas (HSNT), we value your privacy and comfort above all else. When you visit our office to receive a sonogram, our team of compassionate physicians and medical assistants will safeguard your information and maintain a confidential relationship with you throughout your health journey.
"Absolutely the best experience! From start to finish. The peds care about my baby and sonja is the best! She explains everything and helps me to understand everything!"- K.M. / Google / Aug 06, 2021
"Wasn't a fan of the pushiness / complete disregard for our family history of serious injury post-shots. The pediatrician completely ignored and invalidated our concerns and the needs for our kid, but had plenty to say about getting shots despite our pending exemption,obvious outspoken position, and family history of reactions. Also, pretty much held a referral over our head because we disagreed. Biased, doubtful and eager to push us in a direction we AREN'T going. Sorry, doc. You're not going to change the minds of families who have seen what a real debilitating reaction looks like and have been paying medical / therapy / child-care bills out of pocket for years due to liability-free products y'all thrust on us. In Fact, I'd give everything in my possession to take away all the shots my daughter received. Parents (and pediatricians) please check out Learntherisk (dot) org if you want to look at risks beyond a watered down profit-motivated pamphlet you're given in a lobby. Clean facility, fast appointment, responsive, but long wait time. Also, went to a different practice the same week for a check up. They completely respected our decisions, didn't fight us on our position once, or bring it up for that matter, and genuinely helped with our needs, concerns and took the referral we needed seriously. Keep shopping if you don't trust your gut, parents. Personally I can't trust a doc that invalidates our experiences and ignores our concerns."- S.D. / Google / Jul 31, 2021

Why do I need a sonogram?
Ultrasounds and sonograms serve many purposes. Along with being an integral part of monitoring pregnancy, sonograms can also detect issues within the abdominal organs and other areas, including the liver, kidneys, heart, blood vessels, pancreas, spleen, thyroid, ovaries, and more.
- If you're pregnant, you will need to schedule ultrasounds at certain intervals of your pregnancy to ensure that your baby is growing healthily.
- If you are trying to get pregnant and have not been successful, we may recommend having imaging done to take a closer look at your reproductive organs in a sonogram.
- If you're experiencing other symptoms, such as abdominal pain or cramping, then you may need to have a sonogram for diagnostic purposes.
What to expect at a sonogram appointment
Your ultrasound will be performed by one of our skilled imaging technicians. Some of the perks of ultrasounds are that they are radiation-free, affordable, noninvasive, widely accessible, and proven safe for nearly all patients. There are a few different methods that may be used to conduct an ultrasound, depending on your unique situation and the issues you may be experiencing. While most ultrasounds are performed on the surface of the skin, some techniques require the insertion of the ultrasonic device into a natural opening of the body to produce a more accurate image of your abdominal area, which includes your reproductive organs.
