Cambridge (Massachusetts) [US], August 1 (ANI): Using live images of a patient's internal organs, ultrasound imaging gives doctors a safe, non-invasive insight into how the body functions. Trained technicians use ultrasound probes and wands to guide sound waves into the body in order to take these pictures. The heart, lungs, and other deep organs of a patient can be seen in high-definition images created by these waves reflecting back out.
Washington [US], August 1 (ANI): Microbial instability in the gut could hinder the performance of elite endurance athletes, and that short-term, high-protein diets are associated with this type of imbalance, suggests the findings of a recent study.
