Ultrasound, also known as sonography, is a medical imaging technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the body’s internal structures. This non-invasive method is very useful for diagnosing and monitoring various medical conditions. Groruddalsklinikken is a recognized clinic in Norway that offers high-quality ultrasound examinations.
The ultrasound procedure
During an ultrasound examination, a special device called a transducer is used to send sound waves into the body. These sound waves are then reflected by the internal organs and tissue, and are picked up by the transducer again. The data from the sound waves is then converted into images using computers.
Ultrasound examinations can be performed on various parts of the body, including the abdominal cavity, pelvis, thyroid gland, breasts, heart and blood vessels. Depending on the area to be examined, the patient may be asked to dress in a particular way or take certain precautions before the examination.
