Ultrasound ScanWhat is good to know about an ultrasound test is that it is not dangerous, or painful, and the actual scan is usually less than 20 minutes. Although these tests have different names they are similar because they all require a transducer (probe) placed in gel that is placed against the body. Dependent upon which blood vessels, organ, or group of organs that the physician wishes to have evaluated will decide where the transducer is placed.
