What to Expect During Your Ultrasound Exam

Most ultrasound examinations need no preparation at all. Your test will be performed in a comfortable and private environment and the exam itself is painless and should not in any way cause discomfort.

DURING THE EXAM 

Once you are ready for your ultrasound exam, you'll receive a gown to change into and our staff will ensure that you are comfortable and relaxed. 

  • You will lie on the exam table and a gel will be applied to your skin over the area to be tested.

  • The transducer will be placed directly in contact with your skin and the gel. You will feel or hear nothing.

  • Multiple pictures will appear on the monitor and measurements will be obtained in various planes until all images needed to make the diagnosis are complete.

  • Once the images are completed, wipes will be provided to wipe the gel off of your skin. 

Once the sonographer completes the ultrasound examination, you will be escorted to your urologist who will review the scans with you.
