Ultrasound uses sound waves to generate pictures of many parts of the body.
During the Test
Ultrasound images are created by applying a warm gel to the skin and then moving a transducer (also known as an ultrasound probe) over the body part being examined. It is a completely safe and painless procedure. You cannot hear or feel the sound waves.
Nearly every organ in the body can be examined by ultrasound and there are many different types of ultrasound exams. The type of exam will vary depending on information that your doctor needs.
