Ultrasound imaging, also called sonography involves exposing part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. Ultrasound exams do not use ionizing radiation (as used in x-rays). Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, they can show the structure and movement of the body’s internal organs, as well as blood flowing through blood vessels. Ultrasound is a useful way of examining organs of the body such as the liver, kidneys, heart and blood vessels, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, bladder, uterus, ovaries, an unborn child (fetus), scrotum, eyes, and thyroid.
