Overall, this depends on what you need to get an utlrasound for. However, in most cases, you will go to our in-office vascular lab for a venous doppler/ultrasound duplex exam. This test involves no needles, catheters or dye. The latest ultrasound technology (a small probe moved around on your skin with gel) is used to listen to the flow of the blood through your veins. The typical amount of time it takes is 30 to 45 minutes for the exam.
