Ultrasound

What is an ultrasound?

An ultrasound scan is a medical test that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the inside of your body.

An ultrasound allows your doctor to see problems with organs, vessels, and tissues without needing to make an incision.

Unlike other imaging techniques, ultrasound uses no radiation. For this reason, it’s the preferred method for viewing a developing fetus during pregnancy.

How is an Ultrasound done?
