Overall rating

Ultrasound is a non-invasive scan used to diagnose and monitor conditions in many parts of the body. It can be used to determine the extent of injuries, as well as to guide injections and therapeutic procedures. Some men's and women's health tests are carried out using ultrasound including testicular, gynaecological and pregnancy scans. Ultrasound scans are safe, painless and have no known side effects.

What ultrasound equipment is there?

We use a high-end ultrasound scanner – GE Logiq e9 – equipped with full range of musculoskeletal capability.

Who can have an ultrasound at MIHP?

Our ultrasound equipment is used by elite professional football and rugby clubs and team GB Olympic squads, as well as those looking for sports medicine doctors and the general public.

What does an ultrasound scan involve?

We’ll apply some clear gel to the area in question to aid the imaging process. We’ll then apply the ultrasound probe to your skin and move it back and forth. The scan will show on a monitor, and you’re welcome to take a look, although the images can be difficult to read and interpret. The radiologist will talk through the procedure and discuss their findings with you on the day. A written report will also be sent to your referring clinician.

What do I bring to an ultrasound appointment?

For most scans you don’t need to prepare in any way, but occasionally you might have to change into a gown.
