Ultrasound imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or sonography, obtains images from inside the human body through the use of high-frequency sound waves and computer technology. The reflected sound wave echoes are recorded and displayed as real-time visual images. Radiation is not used in ultrasound imaging.
