What is an Ultrasound?

Ultrasound (US) or sonography is an imaging modality that utilizes high frequency sound waves which are reflected off internal organs and tissue to create a medical image of the various organs and tissues. It is a painless procedure which creates very precise images. Ultrasound can be used to monitor internal motion of heart rate and blood flow.

A transducer is pressed against the skin which functions to direct sound waves into the body and transmit and record sound wave echoes. This information is transferred to a computer for processing a picture which depicts a frozen series of images. Ultrasound scanners consist of a computer console with a computer and electronic monitoring equipment, a video display screen to view the test and the transducer which is attached to the scanner by a cord. A lubricating gel is applied to the skin to the areas the transducer will cover.
