The principles and use of ultrasonic scanning are explained. Doppler systems and combined techniques (duplex scanning) are also described, as are three-dimensional techniques that are as yet in the research stage. The applications discussed include obstetrics; tumor detection; blood-flow imaging; ultrasonic imaging as a surgical aid; tissue characterization; and physical therapy.
