Ultrasound imaging devices play an important role in the medical industry. Using these devices, doctors and medical practitioners can create digital 3D images of a patient's body; thus, eliminating the need for exploratory surgery.
Ultrasound imaging, also known as sonography, is a non-invasive medical procedure that involves the use of high-frequency sound waves to create a digital 3D view of inside the body. Images are created in real time, allowing doctors to see the movement of organs, blood flow and systems. Because of its versatility, ultrasound imaging is a key tool in diagnosing diseases and medical conditions.
However, ultrasound imaging has a wide variety of applications.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), some of its common uses include visualizing tissue and organs; assessing bone strength; diagnosing breast tissue; listening to the heart beat of an unborn fetus; viewing the heart; assisting in the collection of tissue samples; visualizing ocular structures; and more.
You might be surprised to learn that ultrasound imaging has been around for several decades. The FDA explains that it's been used in the medical industry for more than 20 years. And because it uses non-ionizing radiation, it doesn't pose the same risk as ionizing radiation-based imaging techniques like X-rays.
