An ultra sound machine operates on the basis of sound waves that are higher in frequencies and therefore the human ear cannot be able to pick them, this is usually above 20 kHz. These sound waves are used to give an image of an object or an organ inside the body or can also be used to measure distance. The common use of this technology is in the hospital where it is also known as Sonogram.
It is commonly used to scan fetal growth in the uterus, in the diagnostic of various body organs and in surgical procedures as a navigator mechanism. Parts of an Ultra Sound Machine The Transducer probe: This is the probe that collects and sends the sound waves during the scanning process. Transducer pulse controls: This regulates the amplitude, time and frequency of the pulses released from the probes.
