Earliest examples of ultrasound technology appear in 1877 with a discovery by Pierre and Paul-Jacque Curie. They used transducers to send, receive, and interpret sound waves. Since then, technology has rapidly progressed so that radiologists in rural parts of third-world countries are detecting fetal heart problems using remote ultrasound tools, preventing the deaths of many babies and their mothers. The future of ultrasound technology is bright and presents a great amount of opportunity for those interested in the field.
