WHAT ULTRASOUNDS ARE
Ultrasound transmits safe, non-invasive, ultra-high frequency sound waves and creates an image from the resulting echoes. These echoes are recorded, processed, and displayed on a screen by a computer.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT DURING YOUR ULTRASOUND
During your ultrasound exam, our Sonographer will position you on an exam table, apply a topical gel to the skin (this helps to improve the quality of the images), and pass the transducer several times over the area to be examined.
Depending on the type of study being performed, you may be required to remain motionless, change positions and/or hold your breath.
