Frequently Asked Questions

What happens during an ultrasound?

Your sonographer will apply a warm water-based gel to the area of examination. This allows the waves to easily pass through the body, while also reducing friction from the transducer. As the transducer is lightly pressed on the area of examination, sound waves are transmitted through the body, and an image is produced that is analyzed by our radiologist.

How long will my ultrasound exam take?

A typical examination is usually completed within 5-10 minutes.
