Ultrasound

A type of scan that uses high frequency sound waves to create an image of internal organs, eg a foetal ultrasound used during pregnancy.

ultrasound

  1. very high frequency sound; used in ultrasonography
  2. using the reflections of high-frequency sound waves to construct an image of a body organ (a sonogram); commonly used to observe fetal growth

Ultrasound

Ultrasound is an oscillating sound pressure wave with a frequency greater than the upper limit of the human hearing range. Ultrasound is thus not separated from `normal` (audible) sound by differences in physical properties, only by the fact that humans cannot hear it. Although this limit varies from person to person, it is approximately 20 kilo.....

Ultrasound

A procedure in which high-energy sound waves (ultrasound) are bounced off internal tissues or organs and make echoes. The echo patterns are shown on the screen of an ultrasound machine, forming a picture of blood vessels, tissues, and organs called a sonogram. Also called ultrasonography
