Gender Sensitive Ultrasound Exams
A Gender Sensitive Exam is an examination that involves touching and/or inserting an instrument into a body cavity by a technologist or radiologist of the opposite sex.
All of our ultrasound technologists are qualified and licensed. They are registered under provincial, Canadian and American governing bodies.
No matter what exam you are scheduled for, everyone has the choice to request a same sex technologist to perform the exam. If a same sex technologist is not available in a timely manner, you have the following options:
- Wait for a same sex technologist to become available
- Reschedule your exam on a day that one will be available
- Have an opposite sex technologist perform your exam with a chaperone (a same sex individual who is not a technologist) present
- Continue with an opposite gender technologist performing the procedure
