Is Ultrasound Painful?
No, not at all. There is no pain or discomfort involved. What happens is that you lie down comfortably and a technician will put some lubricating substance over the area that is to be looked at. This ensures that the sound waves connect properly with your skin and are not dispersed through an air gap. A sound 'pad' is gently smoothed back and forth across your skin. It sends sound waves into your body and picks up the echoes.
