Identifying a medical condition at an early stage is essential as it gives you more time for treatment and recovery. Ultrasound imaging plays an important role in healthcare as it helps identify various health issues related to the organs and structures inside the body and produces accurate results.
What is an Ultrasound?
An ultrasound is a type of imaging that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images of the organs and other structures inside the body. Also known as sonography, this test is used by most healthcare professionals to view the heart, kidneys, blood vessels, liver, and other organs. During pregnancy, doctors use ultrasound imaging to see the foetus. Unlike other imaging techniques, ultrasound does not use radiation and therefore, is the most preferred method to view a developing foetus during pregnancy.
Why is an Ultrasound performed?
Most people associate an Ultrasound test with pregnancy as it provides an expectant mother with a view of her unborn child. However, the test has many other uses. A doctor may suggest an ultrasound scan if you are having a swelling, pain or any symptoms that require a glimpse of your organs. An ultrasound can provide a view of the bladder, gall bladder, eyes, kidneys, liver, pancreas, ovaries, thyroid, spleen, testicles, uterus, blood vessels, and more that helps to detect any health issues.
