Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Ultrasound

These comments are made for the purpose of discussion and should NOT be used as recommendations for or against therapies or other treatments. An individual patient is always advised to consult their own physician.

Ultrasound Price [posted 8/4/98]
Question: I would like to know the price of an ultrasound.

Answer: It depends on the organ/s and the part of the country, but generally $200 - 400.

Question: How does ultrasound work?

Answer: Ultrasound works on the same principle as sonar. That is, sound is reflected off solid objects. The frequency of the sound and the applicator has a lot to do with the resolution of the returned sound signal. If you have ever shouted to produce and echo, you have been doing primitive ultrasound-- just a different frequency.
