A general-purpose sonographic machine may be used for most imaging purposes, like viewing a baby in the womb. The creation of an image from sound is done in three steps - producing a sound wave, receiving echoes, and interpreting those echoes. However, the sonograms don't always show what you'd expect, as the example above shows. Continue reading for more sonograms that look like other things.
