What is Sonography?

Also known as ultrasound, sonography sends harmless sound waves into the body.  There, they reflect off the various organs and bounce back  A computer then turns these ‘echoes’ into an image we can look at.  For many years, MRI’s and CT scans have been used for full body scans but sonography technology has come a long way in the last few decades and image quality has improved to the point where sonography is now replacing MRI’s and CT scans for many applications.  Non-invasive, no radiation or toxic contrast dyes and highly accurate, it’s no wonder many doctors are now calling sonography the ‘Medicine of The Future’.
