FAQ

Q1. What is Ultrasound?

Ans: Ultrasound is a noninvasive procedure in which a water-soluble gel is placed in the area to be visualized; an ultrasound probe is then guided over the area. High frequency sound waves are emitted from the probe which forms an image that is displayed on the monitor. The appropriate images are selected and transmitted to a review station for the Radiologist to interpret.

Q2.How is the procedure done?

Ans: The exam is painless. You will lie face-up on an exam table. Warm gel is applied to your skin, on the area to be visualized. Some mild pressure will be applied by running the probe over the area to produce a better picture. You may be asked to roll onto your sides to produce a better quality image.

Q3. What do I need to do to prepare for the procedure?

Pelvic

Patient should drink 32 - 40 oz. of water 45 minutes prior to their appointment time. The exam requires a full bladder for better visualization of the pelvic organs.

Abdominal

Nothing by mouth for 8 hours prior to appointment.

Abdominal Aorta

Q4.What is a CT scan?

Ans: It is a non-invasive x-ray technique that is often one hundred times more sensitive than conventional x-rays. It allows a structure/part of the body to be visualized one to eight slices at a time, creating 2 and 3 dimensional images made in seconds, which appear on a TV monitor outside the room. Scanning can be done on any part of the body. Abnormal findings can reveal tumors, nodules, cysts, enlarged lymph nodes, and pleural effusions.

Q5.How is the procedure done?

Ans: The test is painless. If intravenous contrast material is used, you may feel a hot flushed sensation. This is normal and will pass within a few seconds. You will be positioned on an adjustable table and slid in and out of a "doughnut" shaped machine. You will be asked to hold still and may be asked to hold your breath for short periods. The test will take between 15 - 30 minutes.

Q6. What do I need to do to prepare for the procedure?

Ans: Continue with your diet as ordered by your physician. Continue medication prior to test unless otherwise ordered. A contrast material may be used to highlight certain body parts. It may be administered intravenously, by mouth, or through a tube if the oral route is not possible. For abdominal or pelvic CT scans, serial doses of gastrografin or Barium are required prior to the test. Based on whether the test is scheduled for that same day or the following day, a radiologist will order the doses.

Q7.  After the procedure?

Ans: With oral contrast or IV contrast, patient should drink plenty of fluid. (Eight 8 oz. glasses of water at a minimum.)

Q8.WHAT is X-RAYS?

Ans: X-rays are a highly-energetic form of electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength in the range of 1nm to 1 pms, approximately 1000 to 1,000,000 times smaller than the wavelength of light. Due to their being highly energetic, X-rays are able to pass through materials that absorb ordinary visible light.

Q9.What is an MRI?

Ans: MRI allows visualization of soft tissue (muscles, fat and internal organs) without the use of x-rays. Using two natural, safe forces, magnetic fields and radio waves, this unique imaging technique can look "through" hard bones to examine soft tissue.

Q10. How is the procedure done?

Ans: The test is painless. But you must remain still for the 45-60 minute exam. This may be difficult and uncomfortable for children and patients who have back problems and breathing difficulties. You will lay on a bed which moves into the scanner tunnel. The tunnel is narrow and will come within inches of your body. During the exam, you will hear a loud, drum-like sound coming from the scanner. Because some patients may experience claustrophobia in the scanner tunnel, mild sedatives, earplugs and prism glasses are available to ease any anxiety you may have.
