Abstract

Ultrasound has been considered an additional test to be carried out by image specialists. Since its inception, some specialists like obstetricians or cardiologists have used with great results. Now, the general practitioners and other specialties are approaching this technique that is quick, safe, accessible, inexpensive, and above all allows you to complete real-time exploration of the patient.
