Ultrasound uses high frequency sound waves that travel through the body and reflect an echo back to the monitor for interpretation. It can be use to study parts of the body including hearts, major blood vessels, and other soft tissue organs. It is commonly used to check the health of an unborn child.
Ultrasound can help diagnose many medical conditions. It generally involves little or no discomfort and very little patient preparation. Some ultrasound exams require patients to fast for the test and may also require the patient to have a full bladder for the obstetrical and gynecological exams.
