Ultrasound

Frequently Asked Questions

Select question:


How is the procedure performed?

For most ultrasound exams, you will be lying on your back on an exam table that can be tilted. A clear gel is applied to the area being scanned. This gel is to help the transducer make secure contact with the body and eliminate air pockets between the transducer and the skin. The sonographer then presses the transducer against the skin and moves it back and forth over the area being scanned.


When will my doctor get the results?

After your scan is completed the images will be reviewed by a radiologist who will then interpret and dictate a report. This report will then be sent to your physician within 24-48 hours.
