How it Works
Inaudible sound waves are emitted from a transducer, allowing the sonographer to look at internal structures and assess organ function. The sound wave echoes are picked up and displayed on a computer screen.
All ultrasound exams require a written requisition from your physician’s office to be sent directly to our Medical Imaging Department.
Our sonographers perform a wide range of procedures with ultrasounds, including:
- Soft tissue
- Paediatric assessments
How to Prepare
- Arrive 15 minutes before your appointment
- Bring your Yukon health care card
- Go directly to Medical Imaging reception in the main atrium to check-in
- Some exams require you to have a full bladder and/or empty stomach (be sure to follow the preparation instructions included in your appointment letter)
