What is an Ultrasound Scan?

An ultrasound scan is a medical imaging technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to create detailed images of the inside of your body. It’s commonly used to examine organs, tissues, and blood flow, providing valuable diagnostic information without the use of radiation. Learn more about our ultrasound clinic here.

The Ultrasound Scan Process

  • Consultation: Your journey begins with an initial consultation where our specialist will discuss your medical history and the reason for the ultrasound. This helps us tailor the scan to your specific needs.
  • Preparation: Depending on the type of ultrasound, you may need to follow certain preparation guidelines, such as fasting or drinking water to fill your bladder.
  • The Scan: During the scan, you’ll lie on an examination table while the specialist applies a gel to your skin and moves a handheld device called a transducer over the area being examined. The procedure is painless and typically takes 15-30 minutes.
  • Results and Follow-Up: After the scan, the specialist will analyze the images and provide a detailed report. You’ll receive your results promptly, and our team will discuss the findings with you and outline the next steps if further treatment is needed.
