Transmed Inc. is an independent ultrasound company based in Sioux Falls, SD. We have been in business since 1986, and we have grown and expanded our services since then with the advancement of technology. In addition to our ultrasound office in Sioux Falls, we work with over 50 hospitals and medical centers in the region, and we work with rural communities through our mobile outreach services. Our team of friendly, experienced sonographers are the finest in the business and provide patients and physicians with high quality ultrasound exams.
Although ultrasound exams are common, many people still don’t know what they are and if they’re safe. An ultrasound exam, also called a sonogram, is a non-invasive diagnostic imaging procedure used to visualize internal organs, vessels, glands, or the developing fetus. Using high frequency sound waves that reflect off body structures, ultrasounds form images that help radiologists examine the internal workings of the human body. Healthcare providers routinely have their patients undergo ultrasound examinations to help assess symptoms. Since sonograms use no radiation, they are completely safe and pose no negative health effects, and they’re generally painless.
Transmed’s team of registered sonographers offer a variety of ultrasound specialties, depending on your diagnostic needs. We specialize in:
- Small parts
- Soft Tissue for lumps, cysts, or foreign bodies
- Vascular/Stroke Screenings (ages 40 on up)
- Ultrasound guided procedures
- Sudden Cardiac Death Prevention Screening (ages 11-34)
All of our general and vascular ultrasound exams are interpreted by board certified Radiologists, and our echocardiograms are interpreted by board certified Cardiologists. Transmed’s ultrasound services can also be put to great use for preventative care, as sonography can be used to screen for stroke and cardiovascular concerns. Screening for such health problems can help physicians offer more strategic care for their patients, potentially saving them from serious health conditions.
Furthermore, Transmed specializes in offering mobile ultrasound services that greatly benefits rural healthcare providers and long-term care facilities. Using state-of-the-art ultrasound equipment, Transmed regularly visits long-term care facilities and performs exams in the comfort and convenience of patients’ rooms, which eliminates the need to transport them to a medical facility. As a trusted name in regional healthcare, Transmed is proud to serve patients who are in need of diagnostic ultrasounds and preventative screenings.
Because Transmed is an independent ultrasound company, we are able to operate quickly and effectively, conducting ultrasound exams and providing results for physicians. This saves patients time and money, which is important in the healthcare industry since high costs often dissuade patients from receiving care. According to Becker’s Healthcare, 64% of Americans avoid or delay treatment due to high costs.
With our cost-effective services, Transmed aims to provide diagnostic and preventative care for patients who need treatment but are wary of the costs of their care. We do so by teaming up with physicians to offer ultrasound exams that are not tied to the high operating costs of hospitals. As an independent provider of sonographic services, Transmed is able to help more people access the ultrasound services they need, due to our cost-effectiveness and mobile capabilities.
