October is Medical Ultrasound Awareness Month. The main goal is to provide the public with a better understanding of medical ultrasound imaging and its many uses in the health care industry.
Types of Medical Ultrasound
There are many types of ultrasound technology, but medical ultrasound imaging (sonography) is used primarily for people and animals. Ultrasound-based diagnostic medical imaging techniques are used for more than just pregnant women, it is also used to visualize muscles, tendons, and internal organs. This allows physicians to measure size, structure, and discover any pathological lesions. Ultrasound imaging has been widely used by radiologists and sonographers for over 50 years.
Cost of Medical Ultrasound Imaging
Medical Ultrasound Imaging is relatively inexpensive compared to other diagnostic techniques like Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). It is also more mobile than the large and heavy equipment needed for MRI. Mobile ultrasound imaging is becoming increasingly common in the medical field as our world becomes more transient.
