What is an Ultrasound?

Ultrasound is a procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to view internal organs and produce images of the human body. The human ear cannot hear the sound waves used in an ultrasound.


Ultrasound technology was originally developed as sonar to track submarines during World War I. It was first used medically in the 1950s and is considered very safe.




Ultrasound examination is also called as sonography. The images produced during an ultrasound examination often provide information that's valuable in diagnosing and treating a variety of diseases and conditions.Despite its valuable uses, ultrasound can't provide images of all areas of the body.

Ultrasound examinations are performed only by trained professionals such as sonographers, radiologists and obstetricians.

  3. Hi there! great post. Thanks for sharing a very interesting and informative content, it is a big help to me and to others as well, keep it up!
    During your ultrasound a medical professionals will apply jelly to the area to be viewed and then use a wand to transmit images onto a screen. These images can be used to see exactly what is happening inside your body at that moment. There is no reason to be nervous because an ultrasound is not painful or uncomfortable.
