An ultrasound scan is a procedure that uses high frequency sound waves to generate images of internal body structures. Ultrasound does not use ionising radiation so is considered very safe.
To acquire the images water-based gel is applied to your skin and then a hand-held ultrasound transducer is moved over the area of interest.
The ultrasound examination is performed by our highly trained Sonographers who then forward the images to our specialist doctors. The Radiologist then prepares a report for your referring practitioner.
