Ultrasound Scan An ultrasound scan makes use of high-frequency sound waves to create an image of an individual's internal body structures. It is generally a non-invasive procedure, and doctors use it to study developing foetuses, a patient's organs in the abdominal and pelvic area, muscles and tendons, or their blood vessels and heart.
The ultrasound machine works by directing high-frequency sound waves (beyond the hearing range of humans, 20 to 20,000 Hz) at those internal body structures that are being examined. The sound waves that are reflected from the body structures are recorded as images that can be viewed on a monitor. A hand-held probe emits high-frequency sound waves and receives the reflected sound waves.
The ultrasound scans done for pregnant women are a painless procedure and employ sound waves to create images of organs and structures inside the body. It is safe because high- frequency sound waves are used instead of any radiation. Doppler and duplex scans are employed to visualize the flow of blood or fluids through a person's body.
If you have been advised to undergo an abdominal ultrasound scan, you will have to lie down on a bed or an examination table.
The sonographer will apply some gel to your skin to ensure better contact between the ultrasound probe and your body and then place a hand- held probe on the area of your body, tissue, or organ to be examined. The 2D or 3D pictures can be seen instantly on a monitor.
The procedures for other types of ultrasound scans may be slightly different. For instance, to examine the pelvic area of a woman, doctors may recommend a transvaginal scan. This involves inserting a special probe into her vagina.
The duration of an ultrasound scan is approximately 20 to 40 minutes. However, it depends on the type of examination advised by the doctor. The results of an ultrasound scan are a few hours later.
Uses of Ultrasound Scans
Abdominal scans: used for investigating abdominal pain, vomiting, nausea, abnormal sounds, and lumps. Structures that may be examined include the bile ducts, gallbladder, pancreas, spleen, liver, kidneys, and large blood vessels.
Pelvic scans: are performed for women suffering from pelvic pain or having abnormal periods, cysts, fibroids, or other female reproductive system-related conditions.
Pregnancy scans: used for checking foetal abnormalities, the position, and age of a foetus, and monitoring foetal growth and development.
Other uses: musculoskeletal scans for checking the elbow, shoulder, or hip; breast scans; and eye scans for checking internal structures.
Doppler ultrasound, a special type of scan, helps detect the direction and speed of blood flow in certain parts of the body—arteries in the neck and veins in the legs. In the case of needle biopsies, an ultrasound scan helps doctors clearly identify damaged tissues in a specific area.
