Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to capture images within the body. The Siemens Antares ultrasound unit records and displays the reflected sound wave echoes as images in real time. This imaging system is especially effective at showing the movement of internal tissues and organs, such as the gallbladder, liver, pancreas, and kidneys, as well as the flow of blood through the arteries and heart valves. Of course, ultrasound is best known for fetal imaging Ė providing parents with that first "picture" of their baby.
