When I first decided on my research topic, I didn’t have a clear picture of what I was focusing on. I had broad sub sets but no specific research question to basic the project on. So after some consideration my question is “Why is ultrasound only considered a platinum standard?”. Some additional questions that may arise from this direction is:

“How will ultrasound change with the digital age?”

“Could ultrasound have the capabilities to surpass other modalities for the gold standard?”

Throughout this project, in order to answer some of these questions I will describe:

What ultrasound is and how it is used in the medical field.

How ultrasound compares to the gold standard.

The technological advancements for the future of ultrasound.
