Ultrasound

What is an ultrasound test used for? It is used in many situations. The way the ultrasound bounces back from different tissues can help to determine the size, shape and consistency of organs, structures and abnormalities. So, it can: Help to monitor an unborn baby’s development, and check for abnormalities, if any. Detect abnormalities of heart structures such as the heart valves. (An ultrasound scan of the heart is called an echocardiogram) Help to diagnose problems of the liver, gallbladder (such as gallstones), pancreas, thyroid gland, lymph nodes, ovaries, testes, kidneys, bladder and breast. For example, it can help to determine if an abnormal lump in one of these organs is a solid tumor or a fluid-filled cyst. Detect abnormal widening of blood vessels (aneurysms).

Ultrasound uses high-frequency, inaudible sound waves to demonstrate the internal organs and systems of body by creating their images. The images are produced when the sound waves are directed into the body then reflected back to a scanner that measures them.
