An Ultrasound is a common, painless and safe diagnostic tool. The Ultrasound machine uses high-frequency sound waves to develop images, in real-time, of what’s going on inside the body.

While many people associate ultrasounds with pregnancy, it is actually a technology that can help diagnose many medical conditions. Ultrasound scans are used to detect problems in the liver, heart, kidney or the abdomen. An Ultrasound may also be useful in helping the surgeon when carrying out some types of biopsies
