Ultrasound is an imaging method that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of structures within your body. Most ultrasounds are done using a hand held probe/transducer outside your body, but some exams involve placing a probe/transducer inside your body (transvaginal study).
Ultrasounds Versatile and Non-Invasive
What makes ultrasounds so useful is that they can be used for a variety of conditions and reasons. From providing an image of a growing baby to checking a patient’s kidneys to examining the thyroid and soft neck tissue, an ultrasound is one of the most versatile and non-invasive imaging services.
