What are ultrasound scans (also called diagnostic medical sonography, sonogram, sonography)?:
Ultrasound scans, also called sonograms, use high-frequency sound ways to create images of the body’s internal structures, like the stomach, uterus, liver, muscles, joints and more.

– Transrectal ultrasound is used to obtain images of a man’s prostate by inserting a transducer into his rectum.
– Transvaginal ultrasound involves inserting a transducer into a woman’s vagina to take images of her ovaries and uterus.

There are no known risks with ultrasound scans.
