Ultrasound imaging - sonography

Ultrasound imaging or sonography is widely used to examine various organ systems. For example: in the examination of internal organs, blood vessels, the thyroid gland and soft tissues. The examination assesses the shape, size and structure of the organs and, if necessary, the direction and speed of blood flow in the blood vessels. The skeletal system is not examined using ultrasound imaging and the examination of intestines is not informative with ultrasound.
