Ultrasound

What is it? Ultrasound uses sound waves to see inside your body. It can be used to assess almost any part of the body, and is painless. Our equipment is state of the art, and produces very high-resolution images, allowing us to see structures smaller than 1mm in size. How long does it take? Most studies take anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 hour. Preparation In order to see some structures in the pelvis, we need to fill your bladder up with water - so you will sometimes be asked to drink water prior to arriving for your study. Some tests will also require you to fast before hand. You can (and should) still take your normal medications and drink water during this time. Questions? We are happy to answer any questions you might have - so feel free to call us to discuss any questions you have. We have staff that speak multiple languages, including Arabic and Vietnamese to help you.
