Ultrasound Marking

5000+ scans done & counting

Ultrasound guided marking is a modern medical procedure that utilizes ultrasound imaging to accurately mark locations on the body for surgical procedures. This technique is increasingly popular as it improves the precision and safety of various surgeries, ensuring that the incisions and operations are done at the correct locations with minimal harm to surrounding tissues.

Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the body's internal structures. During ultrasound guided marking, a medical professional uses a hand-held device called a transducer, which sends sound waves into the body. These waves bounce back and create images of the internal structures, allowing the doctor to see the exact location that needs to be marked for surgery.

Specific Instructions:
  • Preparation: Generally, no specific preparations are needed for ultrasound guided marking. However, it’s best to wear comfortable and loose clothing. In some cases, you might be asked to wear a gown. The doctor will provide specific instructions if the procedure is related to certain organs that might require fasting or a full bladder.

  • During the Procedure: You will be asked to lie down on the examination table. A gel will be applied to the skin, which allows the ultrasound waves to travel more easily. The transducer will be moved over the area that needs to be marked. Once the doctor has visualized the structures, a marker or pen will be used to mark the skin.

  • Allergies and Health Conditions: Inform your doctor if you have any allergies, especially to any gels or adhesives that might be used during the procedure. Also, inform the doctor of any health conditions that might affect the procedure.

  • Medications: Usually, you can take your regular medications. However, inform the doctor about any medications you are taking as they might provide specific instructions.
