Ultrasound is a widely used and effective tool for examining a variety of body areas and organs.
It does not produce any ionizing radiation and works by sending high frequency sound pulses into the body through a handheld probe or transducer.
The echoes or soundwaves that are bounced back to the transducer create high resolution images of the body part being scanned.
Ultrasound can be used for a wide variety of diagnostic purposes, including pregnancy scanning and imaging of the liver, kidneys, muscles, tendons, veins, arteries, neck, and breast.
Some ultrasound examinations require pre-scan preparation. If you have any queries, please refer to our patient preparation sheets or simply phone one of our clinics.
