What to expect:
You will have to remove your shoes, socks and pants to perform the test. A gel is applied to the area of the body being studied to help the transducer make secure contact with the body and eliminate air pockets between the transducer and the skin. The technologist then presses the transducer firmly against the skin and sweeps it back and forth over the area to be examined. The test takes about 30 to 60 minutes.
