3-D / 4D Ultrasound

3-D / 4D Ultrasound With Color Doppler Elastography Of Breast, Liver And Echocardiography

Ultrsonography (USG) is a procedure by which images of the various organs in the body are obtained with the help of ultrasound waves. Essentially ultrasound waves are sound waves in the very high frequency range (2.5 to 5.0 MHz). At this frequency these sound waves are inaudible to the human ear.

Ultrasound waves are able to pass through body tissues to a variable degree. In the case of some body tissues they may pass through unhindered, while in other cases these waves may be partly reflected back, or absorbed by the tissue such as air cells, or be blocked completely as by bone. Those ultrasound waves that get reflected back are received by a transducer. Depending upon the signal strength of the returned waves and the time taken for the return path images can be created which show the broad outline of the organs and some of the structures in them.

Fortunately, the transducer that generates the ultrasound waves can also be used to detect these waves on their return path.
