Ultrasound

Ultrasound uses sound waves to take pictures of structures inside your body. These sound waves echo from the body to create a picture onto the computer screen. This computer screen is a large ultrasound machine on wheels.

The human ear cannot hear these sound wave echoes, so a special wand called a transducer (like a camera) is used to take pictures.
