WHAT IS AN ULTRASOUND?
Transcript of WHAT IS AN ULTRASOUND?
sounds or other vibrations having an ultrasonic frequency, particularly as used in medical imaging.
Describe What Ultrasounds Do
An ultrasound scan, also referred to as a sonogram, diagnostic sonography, and ultrasonography, is a device that uses high frequency sound waves to create an image of some part of the inside of the body, such as the stomach, liver, heart, tendons, muscles, joints and blood vessels.
How Ultrasounds Work
When sound waves from the transducer (ultrasound equipment) hit a specific body part, the waves bounce back to the transducer. Then the computer connected to the transducer then converts the reflected sound waves into an image of the body part.
