Ultrasound, a widely used medical imaging technique, provides valuable insights into the internal structures of the body. Using high-frequency sound waves, ultrasound imaging creates real-time images of organs, tissues, and blood flow. This noninvasive procedure is safe, painless, and doesn't involve radiation, making it a preferred choice for various medical conditions.
Ultrasound, including 3D ultrasound, plays a crucial role in diagnosing and monitoring conditions such as pregnancy, heart problems, kidney issues, and abdominal disorders. By capturing detailed images, ultrasound examinations aid healthcare professionals in making accurate diagnoses and developing appropriate treatment plans.
During the ultrasound procedure, you'll lie comfortably on an examination table. A gel is applied to the specific area being examined, which helps transmit the sound waves and improve image quality. The ultrasound technician, known as a sonographer, moves a handheld device called a transducer over the gel-covered area. This device emits and receives sound waves, creating detailed images on a monitor. The procedure typically takes around 20 to 60 minutes, depending on the area being examined.
