Ultrasound technology works by sending the specific types of sound waves to the patient's affected part of the body. Though it is sound wave, but it can never be heard due to its high frequency. Through the matter, tiny wave sounds are sent, which can produce an image of the internal body part of the human being. Ultrasound system is never harmful for human body like X-rays. Thus, from the last few decades, popularity of ultrasound technology is rising high.
Due to its less effect on the health of the human body, applications of ultrasound machine are found to be varied and these applications involve detecting diseases, industrial applications, biomedical applications etc. If we take the example of application in the field of biomedical field, then the treatment of tumors would be considered. When the matter of industrial applications comes into the focus, then detecting defect in materials would be the best example. Other than this, in industrial application, cleaning of medical equipment, jewelry etc. would be considered as the best. It is sometimes seen that many animals like, dolphins, bats, dogs etc. can hear and/or use ultrasound waves.
Different other aspects are also found out with the help of ultrasound machine. For example, it can find the range of underwater terrain. It can also help to destroy disease-spreading bacteria in the sewage or in contaminated water. Different researchers are still trying to find out many other applications of this kind of equipment.
But, the most important and popular use of ultrasound system would be detecting the gender of the fetus and also other health aspects of the would-be-moms and fetus. Both doctors and patients can get the real image of the womb with the help of this kind of system. Doctors and pregnant women can assess the health of the fetus with the help of this kind of advanced machine. Different invaluable information about the expectant mother and unborn baby can be found with the help of ultrasound machines. Medical professionals can get to know the gestational age, location of the fetus and growth rate of the baby. Any kind of abnormality with the fetus or any type of health issues of mother (e.g. - if mother has ectopic pregnancy or has twin baby inside the womb) can also be detected with the help of it. Different problems like ovarian cysts, pelvic disorders etc. can also be diagnosed with the help of these machines. Thus, we can see that the contribution of ultrasound technology is incomparable.
