The procedure

   The procedure usually takes approximately 45 minutes. Test time may vary due to specific physician requests.

After you are in the ultrasound examination room, you will be asked to change into a gown and provide us with a brief history.

You will then be placed on a stretcher. In order to obtain quality images, we will need to place a water-based gel on your neck. A plastic device called a transducer will be placed over your scrotal area and moved back and forth to obtain the images necessary to answer your physician's questions.
