Ultrasound imaging is a technology that produces sound waves that are then transmitted to a computer screen in the form of pictures or images. Also known as ultrasound scanning or sonography, this painless procedure allows medical technicians a noninvasive way to see inside of the body. More specifically, it captures the structure and movement of the body’s internal organs in real time. Ultrasound imaging assists physicians in diagnosing and therefore treating medical conditions.
Ultrasounds have evolved over the years. In the past, images were only available for display of flat sections of the body. Now, however, with the use on an ultrasound machine, three-dimensional imaging and four-dimensional imaging can take place.
Some situations call for a portable ultrasound machine rental. These could include locations where space is limited, mobility is important, or the scanning must be complete in field. Reputable medical equipment rental companies across the US offer both new and used portable ultrasound machine rentals at a fraction of the cost to purchase.
