Pelvic Ultrasound and Transvaginal Ultrasound

How Long For Results?

If a doctor does the test, you might be able to get preliminary results immediately; this will not be possible if a technician performs the test. Whether a doctor or technician performs the test, he or she records it on a videotape so that it can be formally reviewed by a radiologist. Your doctor should receive the radiologist's report in a day or two.
