It may also be used for diagnosing if the to-be mother or her unborn baby might have a complication associated with the flow of blood.

  • A special gel will be applied on the skin above the area to be tested.

  • A transducer, a wand-like device, will be moved over the area.

  • The device will send sound waves into the patient’s body.

  • The movement of blood cells results in an alteration in the pitch of the sound waves. Pulse-like or swishing sounds may be heard during the procedure.

  • The sound waves are recorded and thereafter turned into graphs or images on the monitor.

  • The doctor or the technician will wipe the gel off the patient’s body after the test is successfully completed.
