Are there any health risks from having an ultrasound?

Most ultrasound scanning is noninvasive (no needles or injections) and is usually painless. Ultrasound is easy-to-use and less expensive than other imaging methods. Ultrasound imaging uses no ionizing radiation and may be repeated as often as is necessary. Ultrasound is the preferred imaging modality for the diagnosis and monitoring of pregnant women and their unborn babies. There are no known harmful effects on humans associated with ultrasound imaging.
