The high-frequency sound waves are used by ultrasound Imaging ( Sonography) to view inside of the human body. The images captured in ultrasound are real-time, they can also show variation and movement of the body’s internal organs as well as blood flowing through the blood vessels. Unlike X-ray imaging, no ionizing radiation exposure associated with ultrasound imaging. In an ultrasound process, a device called transducer (probe) is placed directly on the skin or inside a body opening. A thin layer of gel is applied to the skin so that the ultrasound waves are transmitted from the transducer through the gel into the body. Based on the reflection of the waves off the body structures the ultrasound image is produced. The amplitude of the sound signal and the time it takes for the wave to travel through the body provide the information required to produce an image.
