Patient is to lie down on a table and gel will be applied on the skin just above the area to be checked. The device called “transducer” will be maneuvered by the technologist gradually over the gelled skin which will then produce images on the screen. Pictures will be captured for reference. You will be advised to hold your breath at times or move through different bodily positions. What matters most is for you to stay still as much as you can. Some tests may leave you feeling uneasy on the bladder or even close to urination. There are even pelvic tests which will use a special transducer into the vaginal area.
