In the ultrasound test the machine which detect the objects inside stomach is because in our stomach the sound is ultrasound or what is the logical behind this?

Expert Answer:

No the ultrasound is not produced inside the stomach.
The ultrasound is sent from the machine. This sound is transmitted by the stomach, but is reflected from the objects inside the stomach. This is because the objects are opaque for ultrasound. This reflected sound is then detected by the machine letting the doctors know about the object.
