What is Ultrasound?
Ultrasound scan or Sonogram is an imaging technique that is used to take live images of organs and structures inside the body. Ultrasound Scans utilizes high frequency sound waves instead of X-Rays and radiation to capture images. With the help of these sound waves it will spot the abnormalities if any in different organs of the body like kidney, liver, joints, muscle, bladder, uterus, ovaries, pancreas, testicles, thyroid and heart. When a person has pain, swelling and other symptoms, then medical professionals prefer Ultrasound to view different organs and to detect the cause of pain or swelling. With the help of Ultrasound we can see the shape, size and structure of the organ. When Ultrasound used for imaging heart it is called as echocardiogram.
What does an Ultrasound scan involve?
As Ultrasound is a safe, painless and non invasive procedure i.e. it does not involve any introduction of instruments inside the body. During the process the persons are asked to lie on the couch, a probe (like a blunt pen) is placed on their skin or organ to be tested. Then the professional applies some lubricating jelly on the selected area to let the probe capture the sounds more distinctly. The probe used is connected to the ultra sound machine and then to monitor. The probe detects the sounds, send it to Ultrasound and then to the monitor.
An Ultrasound scan is faster than other Radiographic Scanning Techniques and it does not involve any exposure to radiation. For some pelvic and rectum examinations invasive Ultrasound procedures are used i.e. a special probe or transducer is inserted into person’s vagina to find abnormalities.
