What is ultrasound?

Ultrasound (diagnostic ultrasound), also referred to as sonography or diagnostic medical Sonography centre near me, Gurgaon is a form of imaging that utilizes sound waves to generate images of the body’s internal structures.

How to prepare for an ultrasound?

Generally, ultrasound exams do not require any preparation, but some exceptions exist. For some scans, like gallbladder ultrasound, our professionals may ask you not to eat or drink for a specified period before the examination 

How do we perform ultrasound?

During the test, you will have to lie on a examination bed while an area of your body (scan to be done) is exposed for the examination.

Our sonographer will use a unique type of lubricating jelly on your skin. Applying the jelly is essential to minimizing friction while rubbing the ultrasound transducer on the skin.

The machine emits high-frequency sound waves that penetrate your body, but their pitch is too high for you to hear. The resulting waves are captured and transformed into visual representations displayed on a screen. If you have a pregnancy ultrasound, you might be able to observe the process in action and see images of your developing fetus.

During the process, our specialists may ask you to alter your position to gain better access to the area under inspection. Once the examination is complete, the gel will be wiped off your skin.
