Diagnostic ultrasound is a non-invasive diagnostic technique used to image inside the body.
Ultrasound is frequently used during pregnancy, to monitor the growth and development of the fetus, but there are many other uses, including imaging the heart, blood vessels, eyes, thyroid, brain, breast, abdominal organs, skin, and muscles.
An ultrasound machine is a medical imaging device that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of internal structures in the body. The machine sends sound waves into the body and detects the echoes that bounce back to create images of organs, tissues, and other structures. Ultrasound machines are commonly used to monitor fetal development during pregnancy, diagnose conditions related to the heart, liver, and other organs, and to guide minimally invasive procedures.
