Ultrasound is similar to the sonar that ships and submarines use to show what's in the water around them. With medical ultrasound, a wand-like-instrument called a transducer sends out waves of high-frequency sound. As these sound waves pass through the body, certain structures like organs, tissues, and tumors reflect the wave back. That reflection, or echo, is then used to create a picture of what's ahead.
In addition to taking those early pictures of a developing baby, ultrasound has many uses including helping doctors determine the causes of pain, swelling, and infection. Doctors also can use ultrasound to view organs including
Heart and blood vessels including the flow of blood and potential narrowing of vessels
Liver, gallbladder, spleen, and pancreas
Kidneys, bladder, uterus, and ovaries
Eyes, thyroid, and parathyroid glands, scrotum
Ultrasound can help doctors with a number of medical procedures such as a biopsy of a suspicious mass.
Today, there are many types of ultrasound used in the medical field:
Color Doppler helps doctors see the speed and direction of blood flow through a vessel.
Power Doppler has more sensitivity than a color Doppler and provides even more detailed pictures of the blood flow but doesn't indicate the direction of the flow.
Spectral Doppler develops graphs that show the distance blood flows over a period of time.
The preparation you'll need for an ultrasound exam depends on the type of exam you'll be having. In general, you should wear loose, comfortable clothing that is easy to remove. You may need to undress and wear a patient gown for the exam. Please leave any jewelry and valuables at home.
Please ask your doctor for specific instructions about whether you should eat or drink before the exam. For some exams, you will need to have a full bladder so that we can get a better look at your abdominal organs. For others, you may need to refrain from eating and drinking for up to 12 hours before the exam.
Ultrasound exams are generally painless and don't take a lot of time. If you are having a standard, diagnostic ultrasound, there are no known harmful effects.
You'll lie down on a table next to the ultrasound machine. The technologist will rub some gel on your skin around the area to be examined. Then he or she will press the transducer firmly against your body and begin moving it back and forth to produce the images needed.
You may feel some minor discomfort from the pressure of the transducer.
