Ultrasound is simple, painless, and without side effects. A beam of ultrasounds is used to create images of various soft tissues such as the breast, liver, uterus, or kidney.
Gel is spread on the skin and a probe is passed over the area to be examined. Ultrasound imaging has a wide variety of applications.
