An Ultrasound scan uses high frequency sound waves to create an image of inside of the body. Ultrasound scans can be used to diagnose a condition, as a guide for surgeons or to monitor an unborn baby using an ultrasound probe.
Depending on which part of the body is being scanned and why, there are three main types of scan. These are External Ultrasound, Internal Ultrasound and Endoscopic Ultrasound.
You may be given specific preparations ahead of your appointment, depending on the nature of the scan.
Most Ultrasound scans last between 15 and 45 minutes and are performed by either a Radiologist or a Sonographer.
We aim to have the results within 2 days.
During your scan you might feel slight pressure, but it’s not painful.
There are no risks from using sound waves in an Ultrasound.
