  • Ultrasounds are also highly effective to guide pain relief injections and for taking specimen samples for tissue analysis known as either a biopsy or Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA)

What is an Ultrasound?

Ultrasound utilises high-frequency inaudible sound waves to assess structures within the body. The sound waves are transmitted and received from a small, hand-held probe (transducer). The reflected waves, or echoes, are then displayed on a screen as a superb real-time image with diagnostic capabilities.

The Benefits of Ultrasound Imaging

Ultrasound is a widely used imaging technology with no known harmful effects. It is a radiation free, cost-effective and generally non-invasive procedure that is typically well-tolerated by patients. Contraindications are extremely rare.

Ultrasounds provide real-time imaging which enables immediate assessment of conditions during the examination. Ultrasound findings are communicated to referring doctors and healthcare providers without delay so that diagnosis and treatment can be delivered as soon as possible.
