Ultrasound is a form of diagnostic imaging used to examine soft tissues and organs.

A transducer is placed over the area being examined. High frequency sound waves are sent into the body, bounce off structures and are sent back to the transducer.

The ultrasound machine creates an image from these sound waves. Because this is done in “real time”, motion and blood flow can also be detected.
