What is Ultrasound?

Ultrasound scans are painless and non-invasive procedures that use high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the inside of your body - a sonogram, or ‘sound-drawing’. You’ll likely recognise these scanners as they’re commonly used with pregnant women to check-up on babies in the womb.

What are some of the benefits to Ultrasound?

Ultrasound scans are really useful if you have issues with pain, swelling, or infections, or problems with blood flow as it takes images of the internal organs and displays them on a screen in real time. The radiologist or sonographer can interact with your body during the scan to help get clear results and you can see what’s happening.

When is Ultrasound preferred to CT or X-Ray?

Ultrasound images complement other forms of scans, such as X-ray images as they give a clearer picture of soft tissue muscle that don't show up as well on x-ray images.

The majority of ultrasound scans are non-invasive (no needles or injections). They are also safer than other diagnostic techniques such as x-rays and CT scans as patients will not be exposed to ionizing radiation.

Woman having an ultrasound scan

My Chiropractor referred me to AECC a few years back for an ultrasound scan. Thanks to them, I was finally able to get my GP to listen when I repeatedly said something wasn't right with my hip. X-rays, MRI, CT, Physiotherapy and a referral to a specialist all happened thanks to that initial scan at AECC
