Ultrasound imaging uses high frequency sound waves that pass through your body. The sound waves are reflected or bounced off internal organs and tissues, and the waves are recorded and displayed by a computer.
Ultrasound imaging works on the same principal as sonar, a technique to detect underwater objects used by both ships at sea looking for submarines and anglers looking for fish.
We believe we are capable of performing substantially all of the diagnostic healthcare tests and services currently prescribed by physicians in India. By delivering most accurate reports over the years. Tests which are not in our scope, we outsource them in reliable labs.
An echocardiogram (echo) is a graphic outline of the heart’s movement. During an echo test, ultrasound (high- frequency sound waves) from a hand-held wand placed on your chest provides pictures of the heart’s valves and chambers and helps the sonographer evaluate the pumping action of the heart. Echo is often combined with Doppler ultrasound and color Doppler to evaluate blood flow across the heart’s valves.
An echocardiogram (echo) is a test that uses high frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to make picture of your heart. The test is also called echocardiography or diagnostic cardiac ultrasound.
A Doppler ultrasound is a non-invasive test that can be used to estimate the blood flow through your blood vessels by bouncing high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) off circulating red blood cells. A regular ultrasound uses sound waves to produce images, but can’t show blood flow.
A Doppler ultrasound can estimate how fast blood flows by measuring the rate of change in its pitch (frequency). During a Doppler ultrasound, a technician trained in ultrasound imaging (sonographer) presses a small hand-held device (transducer), about the size of a bar of soap, against your skin over the area of your body being examined, moving from one area to another as necessary.
Digital radiography is a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also, less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography.
Instead of X-ray film, digital radiography uses a digital image capture device. This gives advantages of immediate image preview and availability; elimination of costly film processing steps; a wider dynamic range, which makes it more forgiving for over-and under-exposure; as well as the ability to apply special image processing techniques that enhance overall display quality of the image.
Ultrasound scanners usually consist of a computer, video screen, and transducer. The transducer is a small, handheld device about the size of a bar of soap, attached to the scanner by a cord. The transducer generates the sound waves and detects them when they are reflected.
