Everything You Need to Know


Diagnostic ultrasound, also called sonography or diagnostic medical sonography, is an imaging method that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of structures within your body. The images can provide valuable information for diagnosing and treating a variety of diseases and conditions.

Most ultrasound examinations are done using an ultrasound device outside your body, though some involve placing a device inside your body.

Why it's done?

Ultrasound is used for many reasons, including to:

  • - View the uterus and ovaries during pregnancy and monitor the developing baby's health
  • - Diagnose gallbladder disease
  • - Evaluate blood flow
  • - Guide a needle for biopsy or tumor treatment
  • - Examine a breast lump
  • - Check your thyroid gland
  • - Detect genital and prostate problems
  • - Assess joint inflammation (synovitis)
