Using Ultrasound Waves to Image
the Inside of the Body in Real-Time
Diagnostic ultrasound system deciphers “ultrasound waves,” which cannot be heard by the human ear, as signals when those waves are reflected by the boundaries of tissues. Physical features such as the shape and size of organs and the rate of blood flow are rendered as images to aid in diagnosis. Ultrasound requires no radiation exposure and it is also safe, painless, and able to be performed repeatedly. Therefore, it is widely used as a diagnostic tool for a wide range of purposes, from routine check-ups to more thorough examinations, as well as a guide for treatment and in follow-up checks.
