Ultrasound, also called sonography, provides a non-invasive technique for of imaging internal bodily structures using high-frequency sound waves. Sonograms reveal the development of fetuses in utero and the condition of other organs like the heart, blood vessels, thyroid gland, eyes, and other structures that aren’t filled with air.
The ultrasound transducer sends sound waves that reflect off internal structures and converts those echoes to electric signals for the scanner, which creates a 2D image.
To get a clear scan, the technician uses a gel on the skin to ensure that no air pockets interfere with the sound reflections. Ultrasound supplies such as Aquasonic Clear® Ultrasound Gel provide an irritation-free means of preventing disruption from surrounding airflow.
