Providing our patients greater comfort and shorter examination times, while providing Consultants with a wide range of applications and diagnostic tools.
Ultrasound images have proven to be a good method of guiding minimally invasive procedures. Ultrasound scanner images are used to examine the body in order to detect problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments,joints and soft tissue. The images will demonstrate movement, function and anatomy, and will allow Consultants to analyse conditions and assess damage after an injury or illness.
Ultrasound scanning is also a good method of examining the body’s internal organs, including the heart, liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, kidneys and bladder. The scans help in determining the sources of pain, swelling or infection from which a patient may suffer. Since the Ultrasound images are captured in real time, they demonstrate movement of internal tissues and organs, and allow Consultants to observe the patient’sblood flow and heart valve functions.
The versatility of the Ultrasound scanner helps to diagnose many conditions including damage after a heart attack or other illness. Gallstones and kidney stones are easily spotted. Ultrasound scans will identify fluid, cysts, tumours, abscess in the abdomen or liver and it will also detect impaired blood flow from clots or arteriosclerosis in the legs.
