The History of Ultrasound - A Great Medical Tool
Ultrasound in medical fields continues to develop in diagnosis and treatment. The application of ultrasonic technology has also evolved over time. With the continuous discovery of new ultrasonic surgery, the demand for ultrasound technicians is increasing. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, by 2020, diagnostic medical sonographers will increase 44% over 2010.

If you want to be part of this emerging field, you can complete your degree at one of the many ultrasound schools in the country. But first, spend some time understanding the history of ultrasound.
The History of Ultrasound - A Great Medical Tool
1794 - Physiologist Lazzaro Spallanzani is the first person to study echolocation between bats, which forms the basis of ultrasound physics.
1877 - The Pieter and Jacquesri brothers discover the piezo. Ultrasound transducers (probes) emit and receive sound waves through the piezoelectric effect.
1915 - Inspired by the sinking of the Titanic, physicist Paul Langevin was instructed to invent a device to detect submarine objects. Laugevin invented the hydrophone - the World Congress Medical Education Ultrasound was called the "first sensor."
From the 1920s to the 1940s - Ultrasound was used to treat members of the European football team as a physical therapy to relieve arthritis pain and eczema and sterilize the vaccine. Jones Baker holds a number of ARDMS ultrasound certificates.
1942 - Neuroscientist Carl Dusik is considered the first person to use ultrasound for medical diagnosis. To detect brain tumors, he launched an ultrasound beam through a human skull.
1948 - Dr. George D. Ludwig, MD, Physician, Institute of Naval Medicine, developed a type A ultrasound device to detect gallstones.
1949-1951 - Douglas Howry and Joseph Holmes of the University of Colorado are leading pioneers in B-mode ultrasound devices, including the 2D B-type linear compound scanner. John Reid and John Wild invented a hand-held type B device to detect breast tumors.
1953 - Doctor Inge Edler and engineer C. Hellmuth Hertz successfully achieved echocardiography for the first time by adopting echo test control equipment from Siemens Shipyard.
1958 - Dr. Ian MacDonald introduces ultrasound to the medical OB / GYN field.
1966 - Don Baker, Dennis Watkins, and John Reid designed the pulsed Doppler ultrasound technology; their development led to blood flow imaging at different levels of the heart.
From the 1970s to the 1970s, there have been many developments, including continuous wave Doppler, spectral wave Doppler, and color Doppler ultrasound.
1980s - Kazunori Baba of the University of Tokyo developed 3D ultrasound technology in 
1986 and photographed three-dimensional images of the fetus.
1989 - Prof. Daniel Lichtenstein begins to include the lungs and general ultrasound examinations in the intensive care unit.
In the 1990s - Since the 1980s, ultrasound technology has become more complex with the improvement of image quality and 3D imaging capabilities. With the adoption of 4D (real-time) capabilities, these improvements continued into the 1990s. In the 1990s, ultrasound-guided biopsy (endoscopic ultrasound) also began.
In the 2000s - now - just as personal communications equipment continues to evolve and become more convenient, so does ultrasound technology. In recent years, various compact handheld devices have been on the market. The iPhone now has a telescope application, and NASA has developed a virtual guidance program for ultrasound scanning in space without ultrasound scanners.
