What is a General Ultrasound?
Sonography or general ultrasound imaging is a proven diagnostic method whereby high-energy and high-frequency sound waves create a digital image on a computer, in order to predict a plausible diagnosis.
A general ultrasound is facilitated by a transducer, or in other words, a hand-held device that is lathered on with gel to transmit sound waves into a specific area of your body. The waves help to create echoes from your body that are transmitted and interpreted by a computer as a highly detailed and precise image.
Acquiring ultrasound imaging is not only seamless and quick, it is also the safest diagnostic method where no harmful radiations are emitted during the process.

An ultrasound is usually recommended for the following:
An ultrasound is not only useful to diagnose medical conditions, but it also serves as a device that is capable of guiding medical procedures with ease, such as:
- Guiding through assisted biopsies, such as breast core biopsies
- Helping to navigate needle placements for aspiration of fluid (Fine Needle Aspiration, FNA)
Getting an early ultrasound will help your doctor to manage any serious injuries, or further complications in a timely manner so that you can get help as urgently as possible.
