How does ultrasound work?  Ultrasound uses sound waves to produce images of the internal organs and blood vessels.  A transducer held by the technician is placed on the patient’s body.  A sound wave is send into the area of interest that is reflected back to the transducer.  The signal is then converted by the ultrasound machine into an image visualized on the ultrasound monitor.
