What to Expect
Ultrasound exams use high-frequency sound waves to produce images of soft tissue and organs within the body. The ultrasound technologist uses a wand called a transducer to transmit the ultrasonic waves by moving the transducer over the skin. The image then shows on the screen, being displayed in real time. Ultrasounds are used to check on the development of pregnancies and in diagnoses and treatment of certain ailments.
