When it comes to Ultrasound, RAH is the Clear Choice.

An Ultrasound, sometimes referred to as a sonogram, is an imaging test that uses high-frequency sound waves to create real-time pictures inside your body. Sonography refers to the use of ultrasound tools and a sonogram is the picture it produces.

During your ultrasound exam a technologist will use a small, hand-held device, called a transducer, against the area being studied and move it as needed to capture images of the area of concern. Your technologist will apply a thin layer of gel to your skin and the transducer sends sound waves into your body tissue. Sound waves bounce off structures inside your body and back to the transducer, which converts the waves into electrical signals. A computer then collects the pattern of signals and sends them to a computer, which creates the images.

Ultrasound does not use radiation, it is a non-invasive imaging scan that enables the radiologist to see details inside your body including internal organs and other soft tissue such as blood vessels, without making an incision.

How should I prepare?

Wearing a comfortable, loose-fitting two-piece outfit is recommended. Preparation for your exam varies by the ultrasound ordered and the prep may be given to you by your provider office or will be provided to you at the time of scheduling. Depending on the type of ultrasound exam, you may be asked:
Not to eat or drink for up to six (6) hours before your appointment, or
Drink up to four (4) eight ounce glasses of water 1 1/2 hours prior to your exam and avoid urinating. This will ensure a full bladder when the exam begins.

Ultrasound exams must be ordered by a physician or advanced practice provider. The provider who ordered your scan will receive the results, typically within 3 business days.
