Brief Answer:
noninvasive and painless medical procedure

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM,

Ultrasonography is a noninvasive and painless medical procedure in which high frequency ultrasonic waves are used to visualize the internal organs and tissues to diagnose underlying medical abnormality or disease.

It is very effective procedure to diagnose abdominal problems or disease as compared to other medical procedure (like x-ray scan) being safe and non-invasive. It gives actual pictures of the underlying tissues or organs and their structural problems.

Let me know if you want to know anything else about it.
