What we see

Since it is ultrasound awareness month I decided to make this post just a fun fact. Have you ever been in the middle of an ultrasound exam and have the patient and/or their family member consistently call out what the images on your screen were? I know most of you have. Today I am going to tell you exactly what that non-sonographers are thinking. Let me introduce you to what a normal human eye processes vs the awesome sonographer’s eye.
