Prompt Access To Answers

You may hear ultrasound scans being called sonography, because sound waves are used to produce detailed images of a range of structures within your body.

Having the ability to provide this on site is helpful to our patients and their consultants. They value the insight these images produce on muscles, joints, soft tissue and organs.

Your scan may at times be carried out by a consultant, or by a member of staff who focuses on ultrasound. They will explain the procedure and make sure you are comfortable.

Although other scans are available, such as MRI, ultrasound can be the best option for certain conditions, used externally, or internally.

The approach is also entirely painless and safe. There is no exposure to radiation, no known side effects, or pain. A relatively pleasant and integral part of accurate diagnosis.
