An ultrasound machine emits very high frequency, inaudible sound waves which reflect off body tissues to create images of internal organs. The procedure is painless and usually takes less than 30 minutes.
Ultrasound is safe and there is NO RADIATION.
We have 5 ultrasound machines operated by expertly trained radiographers and radiologists.
A full bladder is often useful to see pelvic organs and you may be required to drink water before the scan.
When making your booking, you may be asked to not eat anything for 6 hours before your ultrasound scan. This results in less gas in the stomach and intestines and is especially important when examining some of the upper abdominal structures.
