Ultrasound is used to examine internal organs, soft tissue, joints, breasts and blood vessels. Sonography is based on the use of sound waves that are emitted by a transducer and scattered or reflected by tissues to varying degrees. The ultrasound therefore produces a sound wave echo, which is then received again at the transducer. This echo is converted into an image, known as a sonogram.

How your MRI works

The examination does not require X-rays, is painless and only takes a few minutes. Sonography is therefore particularly suitable for the initial assessment of the pelvic and abdominal organs, neck, lymph nodes and joints. Sonography is often the imaging method of first choice, especially when it comes to gallstones or kidney changes. Sometimes sonography is also carried out as a supplementary examination. For example, ultrasound diagnostics are often used as a supplement to mammography in breast diagnostics.

The simultaneous use of the Doppler method further increases the informative value of sonography. This additional examination can be used to determine the speed of the blood flow, among other things. This makes the smallest vascular changes visible.
