I just need to check with you. Is this sentence correct as it does not sound familiar to me.

After the scan is done, we analyse the results.

What I want to say is after some task "scan" is finished, we do the analysis. The analysis can not be done before the scan is finished.


Your sentence is fine. When describing a process involving stages or steps, we can use the present tense: After the salt is dissolved, the flour is added; after the cutting is done, we pack the pieces in bags; after the scan is done (or has been completed) we analyse the results.
