Definition
sound of frequency above the range of human hearing
  • She looked so real on the ultrasound screen that sometimes I'd forget she was still inside me.
  • I was treated to numerous ultrasounds.
  • After five minutes, I started to worry—Kurt was on duty today, and had taken his lunch break early so that I could go to the ultrasound without dragging Elizabeth along.
  • It was no surprise when a month later I gave birth to Claire—an infant who looked nothing like her father, as she had that day at the ultrasound, but who instead was the spitting image of the sister she would never meet.
  • But since time is of the essence, I'd recommend a transcranial Doppler test, which uses ultrasound to measure blood flow through the carotid arteries at the base of the brain.
