During the ultrasound examination - also called sonography or echography - high-frequency ultrasound waves are used to display images. The ultrasonic waves sent into the body tissue are reflected differently by the tissue of different structures. The reflected sound waves are collected and measured; the computer finally generates an ultrasound image based on the time difference between the transmitted and received pulses.
No, the examination is completely painless.
During a sonography examination, the doctor touches you with a transducer, while at the same time the image of the examined body region appears on a monitor.
Depending on the area of the body examined, the examination usually takes between 5 and 20 minutes.
When examining the pelvic organs (urinary bladder), the urinary bladder should be filled so that it can be used as a so-called sound window.
No special preparation required.
