Sonography allows organs, tissues and vessels to be imaged with high-frequency sound waves. The technologist uses equipment that emits sound waves into the body. These waves bounce off tissues and send back “echoes” that are converted into images. Sonography is used to image organs, blood vessels and fetuses.
