During the Vascular Ultrasound Exam Performed by Hill Medical

What should I expect during a Vascular Ultrasound?

You are comfortably positioned on an examination table that can tilt and move. A clear gel is applied to the area that will be examined by the vascular ultrasound. The gel helps the transducer make a secure contact and eliminates air pockets between the transducer and the skin, since the sound waves cannot penetrate air. The technologist then presses the transducer firmly against the skin and sweeps along the area of interest, reviewing the images on the monitor and capturing "snapshots" as required. For venous ultrasound examinations, the transducer is pressed gently on the leg.

Most vascular ultrasound exams take less than 30 minutes to 1 hour; however, more complicated examinations may take somewhat longer.
