Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot that develops within a deep vein in the body, usually in the leg and ultrasound scans are commonly used to diagnose or exclude the existence of DVT. DVT usually occurs in a deep leg vein, a larger vein that runs through the muscles of the calf and the thigh.

Ultrasound of the carotid arteries is used to evaluate the main arteries of the neck that feed oxygenated blood to the brain. Sometimes, these vital arteries can be narrowed due to a build up of plaque. Narrowing of the vessels can increased the risk of stroke.

What is a difference between sonography and ultrasound?

The word Sonography is made up of sono and graphy. Sono comes from the Latin Sonos which means sound and graphy from the Greek word grafei which means writing. So writing [drawing] images using sound and in our case high frequency sound. Today it is more common to hear the expression of medical ultrasound than medical sonography in the UK.

 

What is an ultrasound scan? 

Ultrasound imaging is a medical diagnostic technique where sound waves are being used to image various parts of the body.
Other terms used are ultrasonography, sonograms, US, echography  and sonography.
Ultrasound is widely used these days as it is painless and safe for adults, children and foetuses. There are no side effects such as the ones associated with ionising radiation produced by other imaging modalities such as CT and plain x-rays.
During the examination, the sonographer rests a small probe called transducer over the skin. This probe produces high frequency, sound waves i.e. pulsations that travel through your skin and inside your body. Part of the sound waves are being reflected back to the transducer and the computer analyses the returning echoes and produces the image on the scnner screen. Medical ultrasonography uses the same principle as the sonar that the navy uses to detect submarines.
The medical test is being used to image mostly solid soft organs such as liver, kidneys, uterus and ovaries, muscles and blood vessels and babies in the womb. It has, however, limited value in organs such as lungs, bone, stomach and bowel/colon.
The images are black and white but colour Doppler is being used to evaluate organ blood flow and blood vessels and this is what the red and blue colours on the screen are.
