General and specialized ultrasound

By appointment only
Covered by the RAMQ

The ultrasound exam is a basic, simple, fast, versatile, non-invasive and radiation free diagnostic tool. It uses ultrasounds to create an image. Ultrasounds are emitted from a probe, pass through the body, are reflected by the various organs, are captured by the same probe and are finally translated by a computer as images that will be interpreted by the radiologist.


Ultrasounds are directed to an area of interest according to clinical symptoms. For example, during an abdominal ultrasound we will study the liver, gallbladder, kidneys, spleen, pancreas and aorta. For pelvic ultrasound exams, most often in women, the exam focuses on the uterus, ovaries and bladder (which must be full to move up the intestines that block ultrasounds).

Doppler exams allow a more specific study of cardiovascular circulation. They are indicated for the following investigations: Heart - Carotids - Arteries and veins of the limbs - Renal and digestive arteries.

The exam process

The probe, coated with a non-allergenic and odorless gel, is moved over the concerned area for the acquisition of the images that appear on the screen and are digitally recorded.

Duration of the exam

The duration of the ultrasound exam is between 10 and 30 minutes depending on the kind of examination.
