Diagnostic medical ultrasound (sonography) uses high frequency sound waves to obtain images of the body. The Ultrasound Service at Johns Hopkins Bayview provides hands-on ultrasound with personal involvement by a Johns Hopkins radiologist. Our certified medical sonographers are dedicated to pursuing excellence and taking the time necessary to provide quality service. Your radiologist will personally discuss your sonogram results with you.
The recently renovated ultrasound suite features the latest state-of-the-art equipment, the IU22 from Philips Medical Systems, with three- and four-dimensional capabilities.
In addition to general ultrasound, Johns Hopkins Bayview offers the following specialized ultrasound services, including:
- High-risk obstetrical sonogram
- Interventional procedures such as thyroid and lymph node biopsies, and drainage of fluid collections
- Breast services available at Johns Hopkins Breast Center

Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center has been granted the American College of Radiology (ACR) gold seal. The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs are assessed. The findings are reported to the ACR Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report they can use for continuous practice improvement.
