What is an Ultrasound?

An Ultrasound (also called sonography) is a test that uses sound waves to produce images of organs inside your body. This test can be used to examine your gallbladder, kidney, liver, pancreas, or blood vessels. Pregnant women can have the exam to check on the unborn embryo or fetus.Ultrasound of baby sucking thumb

Why should I have an Ultrasound?

An ultrasound can be used to see blood flow as well as determine the source of any pain, swelling or infection. This test requires an order from your doctor, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant.

How long will the exam take?

The exam can be completed within 30 to 60 minutes.

What do I do before the exam?

The instructions for this test vary depending on what organ will be examined. When your doctor orders the test, he/she will give you specific preparation instructions to follow. If you have any questions, please call our office at 743-0445.

What will the exam be like?

You will be asked to change into a gown and escorted to the exam room. You will lie on the exam table next to the ultrasound equipment. A gel will be applied to the area to be tested. The technologist will move a small device slowly across your skin.

What happens with my test results?

One of our specially trained radiologists will study the images from your test and send a typed report to your doctor, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant. They can then discuss the results with you in detail.

What if I have further questions?
