Ultrasound Technology – the safest imaging modality

Know how does the ultrasound technology works, what it is based on and how it reads through the body to know it all

Ultrasound is based on sonar waves and it sends a sound beam through the transducer, into the patient’s body system, and then it reflects us on beams back. And that’s how it tends to pick up the pictures. From a clinical point of view, it doesn’t involve any radiations and practically we’ve seen no side effects with ultrasounds whatsoever.

There was some fear about ultrasounds creating some like a Tomo, uh, an index that has images in which heating of the cells is there. But for practical screenings, for the last 40 years, ultrasounds have been used worldwide and no side effects have been noticed whatsoever till now.
