No Preparation Is Required.

  • Clothing

    An ultrasound may require you to remove articles of clothing and you may be asked to put on a paper gown. Some jewelry articles may interfere with the test and may have to be removed. Wear loose clothing for most ultrasound types.

  • Before The Test

    You may be asked to remove articles of clothing and put on a paper gown. During the x-ray you will be asked to remain completely still while the test is being performed. The test itself is quick and usually lasts only a few seconds to a few minutes depending on the number of images required.

  • After The Test

    You can remove the ultrasound gel with relative ease and no traces. You may go about your daily activities immediately after the test unless otherwise advised by our staff. The reports will be produced by the reading physician and shared with your referring doctor. You may discuss these results with your doctor at a follow-up appointment.
