Ultrasound (US) imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or sonography, is a method of obtaining images from inside the human body through the use of high frequency sound waves. The soundwave echoes are recorded and displayed as a real-time visual image. No radiation is involved in ultrasound imaging.
