    About Ultrasounds

    Diagnostic medical ultrasound or sonogram or medical ultra -sonography as otherwise known is a painless imaging technique utilising ultra sound waves to produce internal images of the body.
    It is called ultrasound as the sound frequency being used is at the region of 1 to 20MHz. The human ear can’t hear these frequencies.
    The sound waves are produced by the transducer or the probe as most commonly known. As they travel through the body they bounce back to the transducer due to various sound transmissions differences in tissues. The returning echoes are picked up by the probe and a powerful computer analyses the echoes and creates the 2d image on the screen.
    There are various kinds of ultrasound scans that can be performed and each looks at different organs of the body such as tendons, muscles, joints, blood vessels, liver, kidneys, uterus and ovaries to confirm or exclude possible pathology. It is also live and is ideal for musculoskeletal exams to evaluate moving joints.
    Unlike CT and MRI, ultrasound scans do not use radiation and therefore are pregnancy friendly. Ultrasound is therefore being used in all stages of pregnancy starting from as early 5 weeks.

    What are the benefits and risks of the ultrasound scans?


    • Ultrasound scans are non-invasive.
    • An ultrasound scan exam may be occasionally, temporarily uncomfortable, but it should not be painful.
    • Ultrasound is widely available, easy-to-use and less expensive than other imaging modalities.
    • Ultrasound scans are extremely safe and do not use any ionizing radiation.
    • Ultrasound scanning gives a clear picture of soft tissues such as liver that do not show up well on x-rays.


    • There are no known harmful effects on humans related to ultrasound scans.


    What are the limitations of Ultrasound scan Imaging?

     Ultrasound does not travel well in bowel or gas so you cannot fully evaluate abdominal organs such as stomach and bowel or organs obscured by bowel.
    It can also be hard to fully visualise internal anatomy of large patients as the ultrasound has further to travel and therefore the returning ultrasound echoes are weaker.
