Sonography skills vessels

An ultrasound examination, also known as sonography, is one of the most important diagnostic tools for detecting constrictions or occlusions in blood vessels. Sonography uses sound waves that cannot be heard by humans. The acoustic energy bounces off and this reflection creates an optical image. Furthermore, the direction of the blood flow is made visible and the flow velocity can be measured. In addition, patients need not fear any side effects during the examination. This process with its advantages will be explained in detail in this lecture.
