How long do ultrasound studies typically last and how much room is required?
Each ultrasound test usually lasts between 30 and 75 minutes depending on patient and type of study being performed. Technically difficult studies may take longer. Sonographers will inform your staff about the amount of time required for each study before patients are scheduled. Ultrasound equipment used by our sonographers is compact and does not require extra space. A typical exam room with an examination table is sufficient to complete a study. Rooms without windows or with very limited light are preferred.
