      02. Introduction
      Medical ultrasound equipment produces special sound waves that humans cannot hear.
      Vibrations or waves moving through the body result in ultrasound waves. An ultrasound machine
      generates ionizing radiation; however, the level is very low and does not harm the human body.
      Ultrasound is considered by healthcare professionals to be safer than most of the other imaging
      technologies and it has the ability to provide doctors with vitally important information. Medical
      ultrasound equipment can diagnose different diseases and medical conditions such tumors, it
      can detect and view an unborn child in the womb, and it can identify gynecological problems
