Ultrasound

Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. It is used to help diagnose the causes of pain, swelling and infection in the body’s internal organs. It is safe, non-invasive, and does not use ionizing radiation.

Ultrasound imaging, also called sonography involves the use of a small transducer (probe). High-frequency sound waves are transmitted from the probe through the gel into the body. The transducer collects the sounds that bounce back and a computer then uses those sound waves to create an image. These images are captured in real-time and can show the structure and movement of the body’s internal organs. This use of sound waves is called diagnostic ultrasound.

The nature of these waves can also be used in non invasive treatment as well, this is called therapeutic ultrasound.
