Images from the ultrasound exam are reviewed and interpreted by a PIC radiologist, who will dictate a report, which is transcribed and sent to the healthcare provider who ordered the exam. This is usually accomplished within three days after the exam.
The sonographer is not able to render a diagnosis based on what they see in the exam room. Patients should contact their healthcare provider for the results of their ultrasound exam.
A CD of the exam can be burned and kept at the front desk for pickup by the patient or ordering clinician. Please contact the File Room at 212-3144 for more information.
