Abstract

During medical devices evolution many modalities and techniques like Computerized tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, wireless capsule endoscopy and double-balloon endoscopy were applied to provide enough evidences for final detection of diseases. As well as current procedures, sonography is a method that individuals are satisfied with it because of various conditions like non-invasive and cheap.
