Ultrasonography

Ultrasound is employed to form pictures of soft tissue structures, like the liver, gall bladder, kidney, heart, feminine generative organs– and even of babies still within the uterus. Ultrasound can even notice blockages within the blood vessels.

Ultrasound can’t be used for bones images because they are very thick to penetrate. In addition, the enteric tract of intestine and traditional lung tissue don’t seem to be easily identified with ultrasound because air or gas will interfere with the assembly of ultrasound pictures.

Ultrasound can be used with alternative analytical procedures or by itself.
