Question by arrowgirl_13: How is the job of an Ultrasound Technician related to Biology?
i am doing a school project and need to know how these 2 things are related. I have searched many sites and haven’t found a thing and i don’t personally know anyone who has this job that i can ask. So if anyone knows PLEASE let me know. ALL help is extremely appreciated! Thanks to all and God Bless! (Please no rude answers. It is important that i only get useful replies to my question. Thanks again!)

You need biology (specifically: anatomy) to tell you what you will be seeing on the screen.
When I lectured at Brown Medical over 20 years ago, I used to take the ultrasound students to the morgue before an autopsy and let them scan and review for an hour or so. I would then open the body, and they could see what they saw (or thought they saw) on the screen.
This simple idea was ground breaking and I hear they are still doing it today.
