Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce pictures of the body's soft tissues. It does not use radiation and has no known harmful effects. Ultrasound is widely used to diagnose unexplained pain, swelling, or infection. It may also be used to provide imaging guidance for needle biopsies or to see and evaluate conditions related to blood flow.
Ultrasound technology is commonly used in the following imaging studies:
