What is anÂ ultrasound scan?Â
UltrasoundÂ imaging is aÂ medical diagnostic techniqueÂ where sound waves are being used to image various parts of the body.
Other terms used are ultrasonography, sonograms, US, echography and sonography.
UltrasoundÂ is widely used these days as it is painless and safe for adults, children and foetuses. There are no side effects such as the ones associated with ionising radiation produced by other imaging modalities such as CT and plain x-rays.
During the examination,Â theÂ crenatelyÂ rests a small probe called transducer over the skin. This probe produces high frequency, sound waves i.e. pulsations that travel through your skin and inside your body. Part of the sound waves are being reflected back to the transducer and the computer analyses the returning echoes and produces the image on the ultrasound scanner screen. Medical ultrasonography uses the same principle as the sonar that the navy uses to detect submarines.
The medical test is being used to provide detailed imagingÂ analysis of the human body inÂ 2D, 3D and 4D ultrasound.
The images are black and white but colour Doppler is being used to evaluate organ blood flow and blood vessels such as in the aortic screening and this is what the red and blue colours on the screen are.
