What is an Ultrasound?

Ultrasound imaging uses a transducer or probe to generate sound waves and produce pictures of the body’s internal structures.

It does not use ionizing radiation, has no known harmful effects, and provides a clear picture of soft tissues that don’t show up well on x-ray images.*
