Ultrasound Care Scanning Services
Ultrasound Care Scanning Services have been established for over a decade and are regarded as one of the pioneers in private ultrasound scanning.
Offering private ultrasound ‘near me’ for various diagnostic areas of the human body, Ultrasound Care Scanning Services offers a non-invasive scan that is used to monitor conditions. Ultrasound scans are used on men and women for a number of reasons including pregnancy, testicular and gynaecological monitoring.
Using high frequency sounds waves, images are produced of the interior of the body and showed on a monitor and stored electronically. An ultrasound scan is pain-free and can take from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the part of the body being scanned. A clear gel is spread across the area that needs to be scanned (this helps the probe to transmit the sounds waves effectively). A probe is then moved across the relevant area.
Ultrasound scans can be used to view a number of areas of the body from abdomen to carotid arteries and shoulders to feet.
Preparing for Your Scan
When preparing for a private ultrasound ‘near me’ we would recommend you consider the process involved and check with the clinic the pre-scan requirements. It often includes the removal of some clothing, a full bladder for uterus scans or refraining from eating or drinking before the scan, depending on the area that needs to be scanned.
Getting the appointment for a private ultrasound scan ‘near me’ is noticeably quicker than the time frame the NHS works to. Radiologists will review the images and send a report to your doctor or a relevant health professional.
