What is an ultrasound?

An ultrasound is a medical exam that uses high-frequency sound waves to create live images from the inside of your body. The technology is close to that used by sonar, which helps the military detect planes and ships.


An ultrasound gives your physician the opportunity to see problems with organs, vessels, and tissues without having to do surgery.


Unlike other imaging techniques, ultrasound uses no radiation. Another term for an ultrasound is sonography.
