Overview
Ultrasound systems are high-frequency machines used for multiple applications. It enables to visualize the various internal body structures and is widely used in the medical field. Its high-frequency sound waves help to visualize the organs and structure of the body. Ultrasound imaging is considered as the safest imaging technique widely used across areas such as urology, cardiology, radiology, and others. It is one of the most vital application in detecting and viewing of the fetus in the womb of a pregnant woman. Ultrasound systems are used extensively in the field of medical imaging as it helps the physician to evaluate, diagnose, and treat various medical conditions. The strength (amplitude) of the sound signal and the time taken for the sound wave to travel through the body and collects the information which forms the image. Since many years the ultrasound imaging is used and it has reached the excellent safety record among all imaging modalities. It is generally considered as the safest imaging machine when appropriately used by trained healthcare providers. The energy by the machine has the potential to produce biological effects on the body.
