Expectations

Ultrasound:

        An ultrasound is an image obtained using high frequency sound waves in order to obtain images of the bodies structures. During an ultrasound, you will expose the areas being imaged such as the neck/thyroid, breast/chest, abdomen/pelvis and extremities.  You can also expect to have warm ultrasound gel applied to the area being imaged. You will feel slight pressure where the technologist scans, but the exam overall should not cause any pain. It will take roughly 30-45 minutes.
