Ultrasound (US) imaging is a method of obtaining images of internal organs by sending high-frequency sound waves into the body. The sound wave echoes are recorded and displayed as a real-time visual image. No x-ray is involved in ultrasound imaging. Ultrasound is painless and safe.
Ultrasound also has a wide application in radiology and is used to image many organs, including the:
- Blood Vessels
- Abdominal Organs
About The Procedure
A hand-held device called a transducer is placed on the patient’s skin. A gel is used to help transmit the sound into the body. The transducer sends the sound waves and receives the reflected sound waves. These signals are then sent to a computer for processing and image construction. These images that are produced can then be displayed on a video monitor or printed on film.
