Ultrasound is one of the most widely used diagnostic procedures available. Ultrasound uses sound waves to obtain a medical image or picture of various organs and tissues in the body. It is safe, non-invasive and virtually painless.

What to expect
A technologist will assist you onto the examination table and apply a water-based transmission gel to the area of your body being examined. A transducer will be moved slowly over the body part being imaged. The transducer functions as both a loud speaker (to create the sounds) and a microphone (to record them). High frequency sound waves reflect off internal structures, producing echoes that are processed into an image displayed on the ultrasound system monitor which is similar to a TV screen.
When the exam is complete, your ultrasound images will be given to a radiologist, a physician who specializes in the diagnostic interpretation of medical images. After your images have been reviewed, your personal physician will receive a report of the findings.
