Ultrasound imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or sonography, is a safe and painless way of producing images of the inside of the body wherein high-frequency waves are transmitted via specialised apparatus that collect the sounds that bounce back.

A computer then uses those sound waves to create an image. As ultrasound images are captured in real-time, they can show the structure and movement of the body's internal organs, as well as blood flowing through blood vessels, so can therefore be used by your experienced Aspetar doctor to guide procedures such as needle biopsies, diagnose a variety of heart conditions, and treat a multitude of other illnesses.
