Ultrasound Machines Questions & Answers

An ultrasound machine makes images so that organs inside the body can be examined. The machine sends out high-frequency sound waves, which reflect off body structures. A computer receives the waves and uses them to create a picture.
Many years ago, ultrasound technology was a very simple way of viewing organs through sound waves. There was only M-mode. Advancements in technology and medicine have made it possible to now view organs in real time, color, pulse wave, and continuous wave Doppler.
Hospital-grade ultrasound machines cost about $200,000. A simple in-office ultrasound machine can be purchased for as little as $40,000 and refurbished for as little as $20,000.
While most machines are geared for specific specialties, many machines are “shared service,” which means they are capable of being used for a multitude of studies. However, the most advanced technologies are uniquely available in the specialty specific machines.
Larger machines have more functionality. However, in certain applications, portability is a more important consideration.
It is interesting to consider that ultrasound is basically a radar or sonar system, but it operates at speeds that differ from these by orders of magnitude. A typical ultrasound system is almost identical in concept to the phased-array radar systems.
