How does ultrasound work at the Eskulap Clinic in London?

Ultrasound is an imaging method that allows you to see the inside of your body in real time. Ultrasound is not invasive or painful, unlike X-rays, it does not use harmful ionizing radiation. Nowadays, ultrasound has become an indispensable tool in many fields of medicine – not only abdominal ultrasound examinations are often performed, but also examinations such as vessel Doppler examinations, examinations of other organs, e.g. the thyroid gland, breasts, joint examination, as well as the assessment of soft tissue coatings. We will explain what this test method is and when to use it.

How does an ultrasound machine work? What does an ultrasound scan look like?

The ultrasonic scanner is a device that uses ultrasound, its frequency is completely safe for the human body, and the range is 2-50 MHz. Each ultrasound system is equipped with components that emit ultrasound and receive it upon reflection from the examined organ or structure. The part that comes into contact with the patient’s body surface is the probe.

In medicine, various types of ultrasound heads are used depending on the examination performed and current needs. The head and the angle used make it possible to obtain cross-sections of the examined area. The ultrasonic device converts the received reflected ultrasound waves into an image displayed on the monitor.

In the 20th century, ultrasound devices are multifunctional, advanced diagnostic machines that often save lives.
