Sonography uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to provide crucial medical insights. Sonographers operate ultrasound equipment to produce and record images of the motion, shape, and composition of blood, organs, tissues, or bodily masses, such as fluid accumulations. They observe and care for patients throughout examinations to ensure their safety and comfort, then provide sonogram and oral or written summary of technical findings to physicians for use in a medical diagnosis.
