Ultrasound

What is it?

Uses sounds waves to create an image. Does not expose you to radiation.

Uses

Diagnosing conditions of the heart, blood vessels, kidneys, liver and other organs. During pregnancy, a healthcare provider uses an ultrasound to look at the baby.

What Happens

You lie on a table. The person giving the test places gel and a device called a transducer on your skin. The transducer sends out sound waves that bounce off tissues in your baby.
