  • ultrasonography:. Huber, Jeffrey T.; Gillaspy, Mary L. // Encyclopedic Dictionary of AIDS-Related Terminology;2000, p218 

    A definition of the term "ultrasonography," is presented. It refers to the use of ultrasonic waves to visualize or photograph an organ or tissue in the body. The process of ultrasonography is conducted through the recording of the echoes or pulses of the waves as they are projected from the tissues.
