Diagnostic Ultrasound Hialeah: How Is The Procedure Done?
Diagnostic Ultrasound Hialeah uses sound waves with a frequency of 20,000 hertz to create a real time image of internal body structures for medical diagnostic purposes. The ultrasound machine is composed of transducer, piezoelectric elements, an imaging unit, and a display screen.
The transducer is handheld probe which houses piezoelectric elements (or special crystals) capable of producing ultrasound waves when exposed to electric current.
These elements convert electrical energy into a mechanical ultrasound wave
The transducer then directs the waves into the body.
Organs and tissue reflect the wave back to the transducer.
The transducer converts the returning waves to electrical impulses and sends them to the imaging unit.
The imaging unit computer converts the impulses into an image representing the physical structures.
