Below are the most common questions we receive from those wanting to learn more about our ultrasound services.
1. What is an ultrasound?
Ultrasound exams use high frequency sound waves to look inside a woman’s body. Because the sound is such at a high frequency, it cannot be heard with the human ear. These sound waves are important however because they are directed at the internal body from a small vibrating crystal in a hand-held scanner called a “transducer." The scanner reflects the sound (echoes) to create an image. The ultrasound is sought after by expectant moms and dads looking to get a glimpse of their unborn baby, and it helps medical professionals identify any potential abnormalities in the pregnancy.
2. Does ultrasound cause any damage?
There have been countless investigations by numerous research groups to identify any harm ultrasound may cause, yet there has never been any evidence to support that it causes harm to either the baby or to the mother.
