* Obtaining the results
* A radiologist (a doctor specially trained in reading and interpreting radiological and ultrasound images) will interpret the results of the ultrasound and give the information to your doctor, who will review the results with you. If the results seem abnormal, the doctor may request other tests.
* In an emergency, the results of an ultrasound can be ready quickly. Otherwise, they usually take 1 or 3 days. In most cases, the results can not be delivered directly to the patient or family at the time of the examination.
