  Ultrasound scan - Description
What is an ultrasound scan? Ultrasound scan (ultrasonography) is a painless technique to examine many parts of a body. It gives us important details about the habit of organs. This scan works in a similar way to a sound navigation system in a submarine. An ultrasound scan uses very high frequency sound waves, sent by a device on your abdomen which observes the inner area. The waves bounce back if they hit an organ and so doctor and patient can see the result on a computer display. Due to this technique you are also able to see moving parts in the womb, like the heart of a baby.
