How is the Private Scrotal scan done?
Before your Doppler ultrasound examination, our sonographer will explain the imaging examination procedure.
You will be asked to lie on your back and lower your trousers and underwear.
A small amount of water-based gel will be applied to your scrotum. The gel will help the transducer to make good contact with the skin. The probe will be moved in different directions over the area of interest to obtain the required information/ultrasound images.
There is usually no discomfort from pressure as the ultrasound transducer or probe as otherwise known, is pressed against the area being examined. However, if scanning is performed over an area of tenderness, you may feel pressure or minor discomfort from the transducer.
Once the imaging is completed, the clear ultrasound gel will be wiped off your skin. Any portions that are not wiped off will dry quickly. The ultrasound gel does not usually stain or discolour clothing.
This imaging test is usually completed within 20 minutes. After the ultrasound examination, you should be able to resume your normal activities immediately.
