Ultrasound

Ultrasound imaging, also called sonography, is a method of obtaining images from inside the human body through the use of high frequency sound waves. These waves make echoes which are recorded and displayed as a real-time visual image. The technologist (ultrasonographer) takes a snapshot of each area as part of the permanent record.  To create a better contact with the receiving device a special gel is used. Ultrasound does not use any radiation.
