ULTRASOUND EXAMS DO NOT USE IONIZING RADIATION (X-RAY). BECAUSE ULTRASOUND IMAGESARE CAPTURED IN REAL-TIME, THEY CAN SHOW THE STRUCTURE AND MOVEMENT OF THE BODY’S INTERNAL ORGANS, AS WELL AS BLOOD FLOWING THROUGH BLOOD VESSELS. ULTRASOUND IMAGING IS USUALLY A PAINLESS MEDICAL TEST THAT HELPS PHYSICIANS DIAGNOSE AND TREAT MEDICAL CONDITIONS. CONVENTIONAL ULTRASOUND DISPLAYS THE IMAGES IN THIN, FLAT SECTIONS OF THE BODY.

A CLEAR GEL IS APPLIED TO THE AREA OF THE BODY BEING STUDIED TO HELP THE TRANSDUCER MAKE SECURE CONTACT WITH THE BODY AND ELIMINATE AIR POCKETS BETWEEN THE TRANSDUCER AND THE SKIN. THE SONOGRAPHER (ULTRASOUND TECHNOLOGIST) THEN PRESSES THE TRANSDUCER FIRMLY AGAINST THE SKIN AND SWEEPS IT BACK AND FORTH OVER THE AREA OF INTEREST. DOPPLER SONOGRAPHY IS PERFORMED USING THE SAME TRANSDUCER. WHEN THE EXAMINATION IS COMPLETE, THE PATIENT MAY BE ASKED TO DRESS AND WAIT WHILE THE ULTRASOUND IMAGES ARE REVIEWED. HOWEVER, THE SONOGRAPHER IS OFTEN ABLE TO REVIEW THE ULTRASOUND IMAGES IN REAL-TIME AS THEY ARE ACQUIRED AND THE PATIENT CAN BE RELEASED IMMEDIATELY. MOST ULTRASOUND EXAMINATIONS ARE COMPLETED WITHIN 30 MINUTES TO AN HOUR.
