The Ultrasound device presents a visual representation of the internal organs and tissues of a human body that lies underneath the skin and bones for medical intervention or clinical diagnosis. Externally the device is accompanied by a few important physical components: monitor, keyboard, processor, data storage and probe or transducer. A transducer emits sound echoes at a certain frequency in order to capture the returning echoes which are tissue-dependent. Those received sound waves are further digitized to appear as echoes or dots on the screen.
How to prepare for an Ultrasound?
Most of the ultrasound process requires no particular preparation.
But in the case of some scans, the concerned authorities may request you not to eat or drink for 6 hours before the examination.
For other cases such as pelvic ultrasound, you will be requested to drink up to 6 glasses of water two hours before the examination and not urinate until the entire check-up is complete.
Special instruction may be needed for small children as will be shared by the doctor or a consultant.
The ultrasound is a safe procedure with very minimal adverse effects due to the use of low power sound waves. Further, there is no radiation exposure making it widely used in antenatal care.
