How Echocardiography is Used


25 July, 2011 | Cardiac Ultrasound

Echocardiography, also known as cardiac ultrasound, is an ultrasound- based diagnostic imaging technique used for visualizing of subcutaneous body structures, including: tendons, muscles, joints, vessel and internal organs, for possible pathology or lesions. In physics, “ultrasound” applies to all sound waves with a frequency above the audible range of human hearing, about 20,000 Hz. The [...]

Diagnostic Ultrasound Imaging Technology


1 May, 2011 | Diagnostic Ultrasound

Diagnostic ultrasound is an ultrasound-based diagnostic medical imaging technique used to visualize muscles, tendons and many internal organs to capture their size, structure and any pathological lesions using real-time tomographic images. Ultrasound has been used by radiologists and sonographers to image the human body for many years and has become one of the most widely [...]

Ultrasound Elastography Applications


23 March, 2011 | Ultrasound Scanners

Ultrasound elastography is the use of ultrasound to produce measurements or images of tissue stiffness. Several different approaches are used, but all rely on creating some form of displacement of the tissue and measuring the response. Ultrasound elastography can be implemented in a number of ways; from simple add-ons for conventional ultrasound scanners, to dedicated [...]
