Urologic Ultrasound Q & A

What is urologic ultrasound?

A urologic ultrasound is a diagnostic test that uses sound waves to create images of the inside of the urogenital system (reproductive and urinary organs).

This painless diagnostic procedure provides essential information about the cause of bothersome symptoms. It’s often needed as part of a comprehensive urologic evaluation for infertility, sexual dysfunction, and urologic conditions.

Is a urologic ultrasound right for me?

Dr. Gilbert determines if you need a urologic ultrasound after discussing the reason for your appointment and reviewing your symptoms and medical history. He completes a physical exam and typically recommends diagnostic tests best suited to your situation.

He could suggest a urologic ultrasound if you struggle with:

  • Infertility
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Other forms of sexual dysfunction
  • Pelvic pain
  • Discomfort with sex
  • Painful urination
  • Frequent urination
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Blood in your urine

See Dr. Gilbert at the first sign of new or unusual symptoms to prevent worsening pain or complications.

What should I expect during a urologic ultrasound?

The time it takes to complete a urologic ultrasound depends on the organs being evaluated. The test often lasts 10-30 minutes. Some ultrasounds, including a penile Doppler ultrasound exam, can take longer.

During the procedure, you lie on your back, belly, or side on a comfortable exam table. Dr. Gilbert applies gel and uses a hand-held transducer to emit sound waves and develop detailed images. The treatment is painless, with no downtime needed afterward.

What happens after a urologic ultrasound?

After you complete a urologic ultrasound, Dr. Gilbert discusses the results and could offer treatment recommendations.

He might suggest further diagnostic testing, healthy lifestyle changes, medication, low-intensity shockwave therapy, or medical procedures. He tailors each treatment to your personalized needs and follows up to ensure superior results.

Dr. Gilbert also provides an andrology lab, testosterone replacement therapy, and sperm banking.

He spends as much time as you need and is always available to address your questions or concerns.
