A soft tissue ultrasound scan serves to image a mass felt in the superfical tissue of the patient. It is a quick, non-invasive way of determining the characteristics of the mass in order to come to a diagnosis.
What happens during the ultrasound exam?
The patient lies on a table with the region or area covered with a drape or blanket. The sonographer (technologist who performs the exam) will put a warm water-based gel on the skin surface. The gel helps to transmit the sound waves by excluding air. An instrument called a transducer, which is about the size of a microphone, will be moved over the skin surface by the sonographer.
