Use Sound Waves To See Inside

Schedule Your Ultrasound Today

Ultrasound imaging allows doctors to image the patient’s body using high frequency sound waves.

Also known as sonography, ultrasound imaging is the scan of choice when the patient requires a quick and painless procedure that uses no ionizing radiation. Doctors can use ultrasound to the internal organs, reproductive organs, the unborn fetus, and more.

How Does It Work?

Ultrasound scanning is non-invasive, safe, and requires no injected or ingested contrast. It utilizes high-frequency sound waves that are transmitted by into your body, which bounce back to the detector probe. These “echos” are used to form a digital image of your internal organs and provide valuable diagnostic information. You cannot feel the sound waves. The only discomfort may be from mild pressure applied by the transducer on your skin.

FAQ and the Experience: Everything You Need To Know

What do I experience during and after the procedure?

The average ultrasound examination will take about 15-30 minutes. The patient will typically be asked change into an exam gown and sit or lie down on the examination table. The technologist will apply ultrasound gel to the exposed skin and scan the region of interest using the ultrasound probe. You may feel minor pressure from the placement of the probe.

How should I prepare for my exam?

Ultrasound scans do not typically require any injections or ingestion. Depending on the type of scan performed, you may be required to fast or drink water for a short period of time prior to the scan.
