Ultrasound sonography makes use of high frequency sound waves to visualize internal soft tissue structures such as tendons, muscles, joints, vessels, and internal organs. These sound waves are produced by a transducer and are reflected back from the internal tissues at varying speeds owing to the densities of the different tissue structures. The computer attached to this transducer produces images based on the ‘echo pattern’ generated.
