May 10, 2020, 20:05 Ultrasound

Ultrasou­nd imaging is utilised in various medical settings, from GP to hospital specialists, such as Obstetrics, Oncology and Orthopaedics.

Ultrasound can also be done much faster than CT and MRI scans and has the advantage of having no radiation.

1. Ultrasound to Monitor your baby

  • Measuring the size of the fetus to determine the due date

  • Determining the position of the fetus

  • Checking the position of the placenta to see if it is improperly developing over the opening to the uterus (cervix)

  • Seeing the number of fetuses in the uterus

  • Checking the sex of the baby (if the genital area can be seen)

  • Monitoring the fetal growth rate and development

Get peace of mind and the reassurance you need. Please take a look at the range of Pregnancy Scan Services we offer.

2. Breast Ultrasound to detect cancer

Ultrasound is used at the earliest stage to identify what and where the nodule is in your breast and used to take samples of the lump to identify possible cancer quickly.
