Abstract

The 1960s introduced the use Ultrasound to the medical field. Since the introduction of Ultrasound there has been many technological advancements that have greatly improved ultrasound imaging and quality of diagnosis results. These advancements include 3D/4d imaging, Pure Wave transducer, Color Doppler, and Point-of-view. Advancements do to technology has lead Ultrasound to be the second most used diagnostic tool in many medical fields including cardiovascular, obstetrics, pediatrics, gynecology, neurology, and emergency care.

Introduction
Ultrasound is currently the second most used diagnostic imaging modality in medicine, due to the technology advances and improvement. Since introduced to medical care in the 1960’s ultrasound has dramatically improved. Technology advancements have led to the development of 3D/4D imaging, pure wave transducers, color Doppler, and point-of-care ultrasound. With these advancements has improved the overall health care.
3D/4D Imaging
Imaging technology has advanced from the original 2D imaging in the 1960’s, to incredibly advanced 3D/4D imaging. 2D imaging provided only outlines and flat looking images, leaving much unseen by doctors. As technology advanced in the late 1980’s, computer programs were able to produce 3D images. 3D ultrasound allowed doctors to see width, height, and depth of images. However, the technology advancements of ultrasound imaging from the past few years, have made the most dramatic
