Private Ultrasound Scan

BOOK A PRIVATE ultrasound imaging SCAN IN LONDON, Birmingham OR MANCHESTER

An ultrasound scan is a common scan that uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of organs, tissue or blood flow inside the body. 

What does an ultrasound tell us?

An ultrasound can be used to help diagnose conditions, for guidance during a variety of procedures, such as biopsies and monitor the progress of unborn babies. As soundwaves are used rather than radiation, an ultrasound scan is believed to be a safe procedure.

This type of scan is carried out using a small handheld device called an ultrasound probe, which gives off high-frequency sound waves. These sound waves (which can't be heard) bounce off different parts of the body to create a moving image which is displayed on a monitor while the scan is carried out.

Our ultrasound technology

An ultrasound is an non-invasive diagnostic technique, that is used across a wide range of medical specialties to investigate and detect any anomalies. Ultrasound technology can be used in:
  • Orthopaedics: Such as a musculoskeletal ultrasound used by sports and exercise specialists and orthopaedic consultants to assess and diagnose muscle tears/strains, nerves, and arthritis
  • Hepatology: Such as the Fibroscan® which measures how elastic or stiff your liver is, to assess scarring and damage
  • Gastroenterology: Such as an endoscopic ultrasound which is an internal scan that allows a consultant to examine the organs and structures in the chest and abdomen
  • Cardiac: Such as a doppler scan which is used to estimate the flow of blood through the blood vessels
  • Gynaecology: Such as as a transvaginal ultrasound which assesses your pelvis for signs of any underlying gynaecology conditions
  • Urology: Such as a renal ultrasound which helps check the size, shape and health of the bladder, kidneys and prostate
