Ultrasound is a safe form of imaging involving no ionising radiation. You feel nothing other than than the small amount of gel placed on your skin which gives better contact for the ultrasound transducer or probe. The probe (transducer) transmits high-frequency sound waves, inaudible to the human ear, through body tissues. The echoes from internal structures are reflected back to the probe and transformed into images on the screen.
