What Can I Expect During the Exam?
A highly trained technologist (sonographer) will assist you in getting situated and comfortable on the table, explain the procedure, and answer questions you may have. Depending on the area to be examined, you may be asked to remove certain articles of clothing and/or change into a hospital gown. Before the exam begins, a warm gel will be applied to your skin, eliminating air between the ultrasound transducer and your skin, and facilitating the sound waves as they transmit into your body. The sonographer will glide the transducer over your skin to capture the appropriate images. To allow for the best views or the area of interest, you may be asked to change positions throughout the exam. Once the images are captured, the gel is cleaned from the skin and the exam is complete.
