Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves as its imaging source. Ultrasound imaging is based on the reflection of a sound wave after it collides with the body part being studied. The resulting pattern of that reflection is converted into diagnostic information via a hand-held transducer passed over the area of interest.
First utilized some 50 years ago, this medical technology’s non-radiation nature has made it the exam of choice for fetal imaging in pregnancy. We have the advanced ultrasound technology also utilized for evaluation of Gallstones, Kidneys, Liver, Pancreas, Uterus, and blood clots in leg Veins.
