Ultrasound scan

30 minutes


Ultrasound is a painless examination.

The probe used by the radiologist, which is moved over your skin, emits and receives ultrasound which is completely harmless to the body.

An endocavitary probe is an elongated probe that the radiologist inserts into an organ such as the vagina or rectum to obtain better quality images.

The radiologist will always ask for your consent to carry out this type of exploration.

The probe is gently inserted using a condom and lubricant.

To improve the quality of ultrasound images, it is sometimes necessary to fill the bladder, particularly for ultrasound scans of the pelvic region.
