Ultrasound

An ultrasound machine creates images that allow various organs in the body to be examined. The machine sends out high-frequency sound waves, which reflect off body structures. A computer receives these reflected waves and uses them to create a picture. Unlike with an x-ray or CT scan, there is no ionizing radiation exposure with this test.

The test is done in one of our medical rooms. You will typically be lying down for the procedure.  A clear, water-based conducting gel is applied to the skin over the area being examined to help with the transmission of the sound waves. A handheld probe called a transducer is moved over the area being examined. You may be asked to change position so that other areas can be examined.

There is generally little discomfort with ultrasound procedures. The conducting gel may feel slightly cold and wet.

Results are considered normal if the organs and structures in the region being examined are normal in appearance.
