What happens during the Ultrasound Assessment?
Your appointment will last approximately 30 minutes and you will be required to sit or lay during the examination. In order for the sonographer to access the area to be examined you will need to wear loose or reduced clothing to your appointment. A gown can be provided if necessary.
The sonographer will use a water-based coupling gel between the area to be examined and the ultrasound probe as this allows the sound waves to penetrate without interference. This gel is hypoallergenic, odourless and will not stain clothing.
Once the assessment is complete the sonographer may verbally advise of the findings and a written report will be provided within one week.
The sonographer who will carry out the ultrasound examination is Neil Thomas.
