Caption

Premature baby ultrasound. Hand holding an ultrasound transducer against the head of a premature baby in an incubator. Ultrasound scanning involves using high-frequency sound waves emitted from the transducer. A real-time image is created from the sound waves that are reflected back to the transducer off internal body structures. Premature babies are susceptible to brain haemorrhages and so their brains are routinely examined for signs of bleeding. Photographed in the premature babies ward of the Macedonio Melloni Hospital in Milan, Italy.
