What is an Ultrasound?

An ultrasonic scan is a medical procedure that captures live images from inside your body using high-frequency sound waves. It’s also known as sonography.

Ultrasound, unlike other imaging procedures, does not use radiation. As a result, it’s the most common way to see a developing foetus during pregnancy and is used for many other medical diagnostics.

What are the benefits of choosing a private ultrasound?

There has never been a better time to opt for private healthcare and there are many reasons why going private may be the best solution for you. With the NHS inundated with the recent pandemic and dealing with months of backlog, the long wait times can often lead to late diagnostics and often lead to an increase in anxiety for many people. Going private not only gives you the flexibility to work around your schedule but also gives you faster diagnostic and earlier reassurance.
