Ultrasound allows a medical examiner to examine the internal body structures such as tendons, muscles, joints, vessels and internal organs. The process is usually carried out with an intention to find the source of a disease or to exclude any pathology. This collected imaging insight can be used for either diagnosis or treatment (therapeutic procedures), as well as for guidance during procedures that require intervention, such as biopsies. Radiologists, cardiologists, or other medical specialists interpret the images and the required treatment will be carried out. Trivitron is associated with Hitachi Aloka for over 15 years – innovators of the ultrasound system, across the world.
An ultrasound scan also referred to as a sonogram, diagnostic sonography, and ultrasonography, is a device that uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the inside of the body. The sonographer usually holds a transducer; a hand-held device which is placed on the skin of the patient.
Doppler ultrasound depends on the Doppler Effect, a change in the wave's frequency that occurs from the motion of a reflector like a red blood cell. It is used to assess the flow of blood in a vessel, helping to determine the blood velocity and the obstructions in the blood pipes. It is often used to check the heart and the heartbeat of a growing fetus.
