In case of an ultrasound examination (ultrasonography or echocardiography that doctors use) ultrasound waves pass through you body, which bounce back from inside your abdomen and stomach, eventually also from transitions between tissues with different acoustic impedances.
The doctor will inform you, how to correctly lay down on the medical bed.
