 More information about Ultrasound

Ultrasound technology uses inaudible high frequency soundwaves to deliver detailed pictures of the body. It is a safe, painless and radiation free examination that has been used in medicine for over 50 years.

Ultrasound is of particular use in the diagnosis of soft tissue conditions and is routinely used to evaluate solid abdominal and pelvic organs, the breast, muscles, tendons and ligaments, as well as other small body parts, such as the thyroid gland and lymph nodes. These images are performed as real time.

Ultrasound is ideal for performing procedures under imaging guidance, such as pain management injections, the treatment of tendon injuries as well as taking a small specimens for analysis.

Ultrasound may also be used to visualise the arteries and veins of the limbs and the neck with the use of Doppler Technology. It can reliably detect narrowing of the arteries, varicose veins and blood clots.

As ultrasound waves cannot penetrate bone and gas, ultrasound is not used to look inside a joint, bone or gas containing organs, such as the lungs or bowel. If these structures also require evaluation, then a CT Scan may be more suitable.

Referring doctors are welcome to discuss with our radiologists the imaging needs of their patients.
