There is no preparation for the ankle ultrasound scan.
Our Ultrasound Specialists will explain the procedure before your scan. When you expose your ankle, you will be guided to sit on the examination couch. A small amount of water-based gel will be applied to your ankle. Our specialist will move the probe on your skin to produce diagnostic ultrasound images. You will not feel any discomfort during your ultrasound scan. An ankle ultrasound scan is regularly completed within 15-20 minutes. Our Sonographer will recommend the best course of action, depending on the ultrasound scan findings.
You will receive your results verbally during and after the scan. However, the Sonographer will examine the relevant images after your appointment and prepare a written report after your scan or within 24 hours with any recommended actions. The report will be sent to you so that you can discuss the findings with your doctor, if required.
There are no risks or side effects associated with the Ankle ultrasound scan. Ultrasound does not use any radiation.
