Ultrasound scans use high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body and are used to diagnose a variety of conditions. This is done by building up pictures from the return of sound waves as they bounce back from any resistance they meet. The benefit of an ultrasound scan is that it is a relatively quick procedure, which gives your doctors detailed information about the area being examined. As ultrasound is made up of sound waves, there are no risks or side-effects associated with this test, even if you have a pacemaker or other electronic implants. All sites offer a full general ultrasound service with additional specialist expertise.
