Why choose Ultrasound?

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.  

Ultrasound scans are widely used for many different parts of the body. Most commonly used to study a developing fetus/baby, ultrasound scans can also be used to study a person's abdominal and pelvic organs, muscles and tendons. 

Scans can also be used to study blood flow and to detect any narrowing or blockage of blood vessels, for example, in the neck.  

The majority of ultrasound scans are noninvasive (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.

How much is an ultrasound scan?

Prices are listed by area or region of the body. Should you need more clarity, then it is probably best that you call us to discuss your or your patients scanning requirements.  

The price includes the scan and the written report, which will be available within 1 to 2 days.
