Portable ultrasound devices are a rage in the field of medical science. Unlike X-ray where you can see only a static image, it produces real time images where movement of the internal organs can be seen. These devices are not expensive and also help in saving time and money and in giving an accurate treatment.
Portable ultrasound devices use high frequency sound waves to create an image of the targeted area of the body. They do not require a power source as they are battery operated. They have a screen and a medical keyboard for viewing and navigating the picture. Performing an ultrasound with such devices takes no longer than 10 minutes.
Initially, these machines were used by gynecologists and obstetricians to detect early pregnancy. But, with the advancement in technology, these machines are now used to determine the age of the fetus by using sound waves that pass through the skin and affect the targeted area. They are also used for checking internal problems like tumors and other abnormal growths.
Ultrasound is widely used to give advanced and immediate treatment to patients suffering from abnormalities and other problems. Because of their quality of instantly transmitting and acquiring data, these devices allow for simple yet effective performance at the point of care.
With portable ultrasound devices, it is easy to diagnose the pet's disorder safely and easily. As these devices are battery operated and small in size, they can easily be carried and are useful for veterinarians going into remote areas where they may not find a power source. With portable ultrasound devices, examining the body becomes easier which in turn helps in a more accurate treatment.
Ultrasound technology has made diagnosis and treatment quick and easy at various points.
