An ultrasound is a painless examination, which is carried out using sound waves emitted through a transducer. These sound waves create an image enabling the sonographer to assess and examine the internal organs of the abdomen.
If the clinician decides that you need to have an ultrasound scan they will refer you. This may be done at one of our surgeries or up at the hospital, depending on the nature of the scan.
The sonographer will be able to provide you with an estimated time frame for your results.
