Ultrasound Scanning

Most people know about ultrasound in pregnancy. The obstetrician uses the scan to see the uterus and the fetus to evaluate the pregnancy and the fetus. Ultrasound scanning also can show the abdominal organs for abnormalities of the liver, spleen, pancreas, kidneys, kidney stone blockages, gallbladder for stones and for tumors or fluid in the abdomen. Ultrasound is sound waves with frequencies higher than the upper audible limit of human hearing. Ultrasound is no different from 'normal' (audible) sound in its physical properties, except in that humans cannot hear it.

The same can be done in the pelvis, especially for female uterus and ovaries and tumors. Ultrasound can evaluate the breasts, thyroid and some joints. Ultrasound can check the flow in the carotid arteries in the neck for hardening of the arteries causing plaque or narrowing stenosis that affects the blood flow to the Brain and can contribute to Stroke. The veins can be checked for blockages from clots which can obstruct the blood flow or break off and travel to seriously block arteries in the lungs. And, Echocardiography looks at the flow of blood thru the heart and valves.
