Ultrasound imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or sonography, involves exposing part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. Ultrasound exams do not use ionizing radiation (X-Rays). Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, they can show the structure and movement of the body's internal organs, as well as blood flowing through blood vessels(Doppler).

Ultrasound imaging is usually a painless medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions.

Doppler ultrasound is an excellent method of imaging blood vessels and the blood flow, e.g. Carotid arteries
