Caption: Ultrasound scan of a woman's breast showing a cancerous tumour (indicated by arrows). The image was obtained using water-ultrasonography, with the patient lying face-down with her breasts submerged in warm water. Ultrasonic waves, produced by a transducer in the bottom of the water-bath, travel through the water (a good conductor of sound) and through the breast. Altered ultrasound waves reflected back are received by the transducer and subsequently processed to provide an image of internal tissues.
