The changes demonstrated by ultrasonograms should be comprehensively assessed. In the cases of regional lesions, the location of lesions (at what part inside what organ) should be defined. The reports of ultrasonography should also include size and quantity of lesions, physical properties of lesions (liquid, parenchymal, gas containing, or mixed), and pathological properties of lesions (inflammatory or tumorous, benign or malignant, primary or metastatic, cancer or sarcoma). 3 Clinical Applications of Ultrasonography Ultrasonography has the advantages of noninvasiveness, free of radiation, simple manipulation, and low cost.

Therefore, this encephalic region can be demonstrated by relatively longer T2* relaxation time as a result of decreased deoxygenated hemoglobin under the condition of activation and shows stronger MR signal by cerebral functional imaging. In general, deoxygenated hemoglobin plays a role of endogenous contrast agents in BOLD-fMR imaging. BOLD-fMR imaging can visualize the functional activities of the specific region of the brain with relatively high temporal and spatial resolution and enables clinicians and researchers to understand cerebral activities in a more objective, microscopic, and direct way.
