As a Patient:

  • After you are positioned on the examination table, the radiologist or sonographer will apply some warm gel on your skin and then place the transducer firmly against your body, moving it back and forth over the area of interest until the desired images are captured.

  • Ultrasound exams in which the transducer is inserted into an opening of the body may produce minimal discomfort.

  • Once the imaging is complete, the gel will be wiped off your skin.

  • After an ultrasound exam, you should be able to resume your normal activities.
