Ultrasound imaging of the brain and liver
Ultrasound is commonly used in diagnostic imaging of the body’s soft tissues, including muscles, joints, tendons and internal organs. A technology called high-intensity focused ultrasound is also being explored for therapeutic uses including the removal of uterine fibroids and the destruction of tumors. A suite of noninvasive, adaptive focusing techniques allow ultrasonic beams to be focused through the rib cage and skull.
