An ultrasound is a medical imaging test that uses high
frequency sound waves to produce real-time images of internal organs or blood
vessels. An ultrasound works by placing a gel on the body and then moving an
instrument called a transducer over the area to be examined. The transducer emits
sound waves that reflect off of body parts at differing rates, producing images
of the internal structures of the body.
Ultrasound is used to create images of soft tissue
structures, such as the gallbladder, liver, kidneys, pancreas, bladder, and
other organs and parts of the body. Ultrasound can also measure the flow of
blood in the arteries to detect blockages. Some biopsies can also be performed
utilizing ultrasound guidance.
