Abstract

Ultrasound is a sound energy emanating from vibrating body with frequency between 20 hertz – 20000 hertz. Ultrasound possesses wide applications in industry and medical field. Ultrasound devices are frequently used in medical diagnosis without any radiation exposure to the patients. These devices consist of a transmitter and a receiver (called transducer), pulse generator, amplifiers, the control unit for focusing, digital processors and a display screen. It plays a vital role in the examination of abdominal, cardiac, maternity, gynecological, urological and cerebrovascular, breast, pediatric and preoperational planning and post-operational surveillance. The major applications of ultrasound in medical diagnosis are emphasized in this paper.
