Ultrasound (1970s)

Ausonics Pty Ltd

Did you know that the ultrasound machine is a product of Australian research and innovation? Originally a waterbed-like contraption, ultrasounds give medical professionals the ability to scan internal parts of the body without the risk of x-rays. For this reason, ultrasounds are most well known for monitoring the health and development of unborn babies.
