During your ultrasound examination gel will be placed on your skin and a probe will be passed over the region of interest. The ultrasound probe emits high frequency sound waves. When these sound waves reflect off various structures in the body, some of the energy is reflected back to the ultrasound probe. The ultrasound machine then interprets these returning waves to create a picture on a monitor.
Ultrasound examinations do not involve the use of radioactive energy.
Ultrasound appointments are available at the majority of Hunter Imaging Group locations. Our Patient Services department can provide further information related to your ultrasound test.Make a booking
