Musculoskeletal Ultrasound – Sonogram

A sonogram is a diagnostic procedure that uses sound waves to create images of the internal structures of the body. The images are processed by a computer and may be viewed on a monitor.

Before the procedure, your bowels need to be emptied. A device known as a transducer is lubricated with a gel and passed on the region to be investigated. Once imaging is complete, the transducer is removed and the gel wiped off; following which you may resume your normal activities.

The sound waves used are harmless and the procedure is not associated with any significant risks.
