An ultrasound is a process to detect a wide range of diseases and health conditions by transmitting high-frequency sound waves through body tissues. These high-frequency sound waves are not audible, and the echoes are recorded and converted into video or photographic images to identify the changes in internal structures of the body. Ultrasound is also known as sonography, built on the use of sonar technology-use of sound waves to detect objects placed underwater. This technology can identify the blockage in blood vessel.
What to expect?
- Tests are performed by certified and experienced trained technologist.
- Patients are provided comfortable attire to wear during the process.
- The technologist applies a water-soluble gel to the affected area and transducer (a hand-held instrument) will be moved in a to and fro direction to get the best images.
- The radiologist will examine the images received with the technologist to get the best images.
- The entire procedures take 30-60 minutes.
- Comprehensive guidance throughout the test to help the patient understand the process in detail.
