Abdominal sonograms are used to help determine causes of abdominal pain, locating tumors, or checking for gallstones or liver disease. Abdominal Sonograms are considered painless, safe, and are typically performed within 30 minutes. In order to best visualize your internal organs, a 6 – 8 hour food fast is required for abdominal sonograms. For your convenience, we recommend an overnight fast and attempt to schedule our abdominal studies at the beginning of our office hours.
Scrotal / Thyroid Sonogram
We provide superficial structures ultrasound including the scrotum, thyroid, and limbs. Scrotal sonograms are often ordered due to pain, swelling, or to evaluate a mass in the scrotum. Scrotal and Thyroid Sonograms are considered painless, safe, and are typically performed within 10-20 minutes. No preparation is necessary.
