A Brief Description of the Ultrasound Computed Tomography
Ultrasound computed tomography is an imaging technique that uses the cyclic sound waves pressure at a high frequency. The ultrasound has the ability to scale the reflection signature and then produce the images of the inner structure of the body. Ultrasound computed tomography finds its major use in the field of medical science where it is used in obtaining the images of the internal organs of the body. This technique is used while performing the non-invasive surgeries on the patient.
In the advanced ultrasound computed tomography, 3D images as well as the 4 dimensional images can be created in order to get a clear picture of the object that is under study. In this imaging technology, water based clear conducting gel is applied on the area of the body that is to be studied and a transducer is then moved over the region that is under examination. The images of the body parts are obtained along with the size, structure of the body parts. An advanced ultrasound imaging technique that is the Doppler ultrasound is also able to calculate the blood velocity while it is flowing through the blood vessels.
The techniques that are used in the ultrasound computed tomography are very helpful in diagnosing the various diseases and its symptoms. The prenatal images that can be produced by the ultrasound test can be very helpful in knowing the condition of the child during pregnancy. All these tests are absolutely painless, lesser in cost and very much easy to use.
