The patient is installed in the ultrasound room. The medical staff tells him/her what clothing to remove. The radiologist spreads a water-based gel on the part of the body to be examined in order to avoid any interposition of air.
An image is visible on a video screen according to the movements of the ultrasound probe which goes from one organ to another. Benchmark images are taken during the examination.
Once the ultrasound is finished, the gel is removed with absorbent paper.
