An ultrasound scan (also called sonography) is a diagnostic medical examination that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of organs, tissues or blood flow inside the body. The high-frequency sound waves are transmitted to the area of interest and the returning echoes are recorded. Ultrasound is non-invasive and involves no radiation.
Diagnostic ultrasound can be used to examine many parts of the body, such as the abdomen, breasts, female reproductive system including obstetrical ultrasound, the prostate, the heart, blood vessels and more. In addition, diagnostic ultrasound is utilized during image guided biopsies and selected interventional procedure.
