Sound waves can be used to produce image since sOund waves are partially reflected upon passing through materials that differ in density. Ultrasonic waves in particular produce more detailed images due to their shorter wavelength which allows them to be easily reflected by smaller objects.
Sound waves with wavelengths longer than that of ultrasonic waves, such as audible and infrasonic waves, will be reflected off from larger objects and objects with smaller details will not be captured.
