What do Ultrasound scans look for?

Ultrasound scans are safe and versatile. They can look for many different health indicators, and there are a variety of scan types available to help you get the diagnosis you need.

Abdominal

An assessment of the health of your abdominal organs, which include the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, kidneys and pancreas.

Kidney & Renal

A more in-depth study of the kidneys and urinary bladder, to diagnose or rule out tumours, stones, and other concerns.

Pelvic

There are different types of pelvic ultrasounds, for prostate, gynaecological, transvaginal, and general pelvic examinations.

Musculoskeletal (MSK)

Any scan of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves and joints. Includes the shoulder, ankle, wrist, hip, thigh or calf.

Vascular & Arterial

Blood vessel scans can assess deep vein thrombosis (DVT), varicose veins, aortic aneurysm, or carotid arteries for stroke risk.

Testicular

A specific scan of the testes allows the identification of testicular tumours, sources of pain, and other abnormalities.

Neck & Thyroid

Neck ultrasounds enable examination of the thyroid gland, salivary glands, lymph nodes and any abnormalities in the area.

Why do you need an Ultrasound scan?

If you're experiencing pain, a change to a pre-existing health condition, or a new concern, an ultrasound scan can help you to find peace of mind.

Our expert clinical team, led by consultant radiologist Dr Khalid Latief (BMSc, MBChB, FRCP, FRCR) are here to provide the answers you need. They can use ultrasound scan images to identify any abnormalities, and help plan the best course of treatment.

How fast are Ultrasound results?

After your ultrasound scan, a radiologist will examine your images, and compile a report of their findings.

The radiologist will then send your results to our clinical team, which can take up to a week. They will check your results, and email a copy to you.

If anything adverse is noted in your report, your clinician will provide a post-scan consultation call to explain the results and next steps.

More FAQs

Do I need a GP referral or self-referral for a private ultrasound scan?

A key benefit of booking a private ultrasound scan is that you do not need a referral from your regular GP to access our services. There is also no self-referral process. Instead, our in-house medical team will contact you once you have booked and made payment for your scan. Our clinicians will ask you for all of the relevant information they need to compile a referral on your behalf, which is then passed on to your chosen scanning site.

Why should I pay for a private ultrasound scan?

Common reasons for choosing to book a private ultrasound include reduced waiting times, quicker availability of results, and the option to choose a scan at a convenient location and time. Private providers can also offer a wider range of scanning techniques, and more time is usually assigned to each patient.

What is the booking process for a private ultrasound scan?

Once you have booked and paid for your scan, our clinical team will be in touch within 48 hours to arrange your medical assessment. After your consultation, our clinicians will refer your appointment request to our partner scanning centres. The partner centre will then contact you within 5-7 working days to confirm your appointment time.

What should I expect when I arrive for an ultrasound scan?

When you arrive for your scan, you will be asked to complete a consent form, and you will be able to discuss what the process of your scan will entail. You usually won't need to change into a gown, but any preparation instructions will be provided by your chosen scanning site in the appointment confirmation email.

How long does an ultrasound scan take?

Depending on the type of ultrasound scan you require, the process can take anywhere from 15-45 minutes.
