Further Information

Scan Procedure

During a Soft Tissue Ultrasound, a small handheld device called a transducer is moved over the skin in the area of interest. The transducer emits sound waves that bounce off the underlying tissues and return to the transducer, creating images on a monitor.

Preparation for the Scan

No special preparation is typically required for a Soft Tissue Ultrasound. Patients are usually advised to wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing and may be asked to change into a gown for the procedure.

What to Expect on the Day

The scanning procedure is usually quick, often completed within 20 to 30 minutes. It is generally painless, though some discomfort may be felt as the transducer is pressed against the skin, especially if the area being scanned is already tender or sensitive.

After the Scan

After the scan, patients can typically resume their normal activities immediately. The results are usually available within a few days and will be communicated by the healthcare provider.

Alternative Imaging Options

Other imaging options include X-ray, MRI, and CT scans. The choice of imaging technique depends on the symptoms, the part of the body being examined, and the consultant's decision.

Additional Resources

For further information or support related to Soft Tissue Ultrasound, patients can refer to resources provided by the National Health Service (NHS) and the British Medical Ultrasound Society (BMUS).
