Ultrasound, commonly referred to as Sonography, is a radiation-free dynamic diagnostic tool that uses sound waves to see inside various parts of the body. It provides still pictures, as well as live images, of internal structures.

A topical gel will be used in the areas that are scanned. The images will be taken by a registered sonographer and our radiologists will review the images and report the study. Immediate results will be given when requested by the primary physicians.

How do I prepare?

Preparation for ultrasound varies depending on the area of the body being examined. For most areas, there is no special preparation necessary. However, for best quality exam results, ultrasounds of the following procedures require preparations:

  • Liver, Gallbladder, Pancreas, Spleen, Renal Doppler, Aorta, Complete Abdominal and Doppler - No food or liquids for 8 hours prior to the exam, however scheduled medications can be taken with a sip of water.
  • Pelvic, Pregnancy (Under 14 weeks) - Drink 24 ounces of liquid approximately one hour prior to your appointment time. Do not urinate after drinking, as the bladder needs to be filled for the exam.
  • Pregnancy (2nd or 3rd trimester) - No special preparation required.

Biopsy preparations will be discussed with you by a radiology nurse.

Wear comfortable clothing. Bring your physician’s orders, insurance card, and picture ID with you. Arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment.
