What is Ultrasound?

Ultrasound Imaging is also called ultrasound scanning or sonography. It produces pictures of the inside of the body using sound waves. A small probe called a transducer and gel are placed directly on the skin. High-frequency sound waves travel from the probe through the gel into the body. The probe collects the sounds that bounce back. A computer uses those sound waves to create images. As these images are captured in real-time, they can show the structure and movement of the body's internal organs. Ultrasound exams do not use radiation (as used in x-rays) and are safe and painless. Ultrasound imaging is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions and symptoms such as pain, swelling and infection.

Ultrasound is a useful way of examining body organs including but not limited to the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, spleen, kidneys, uterus, ovaries, bladder, and many other body areas.
