Ultrasound - A versatile imaging technology that uses high-energy sound waves to construct precise images of internal organs and tissues within the body. Ultrasound can be used for cancer diagnosis and staging. Ultrasound may also be used in cancer treatment to isolate the precise location of cancerous tissue before a procedure, or to directly destroy cancerous cells (e.g., through treatments such as local hyperthermia). Also called ultrasonography.
