Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. It is used to help diagnose the causes of pain, swelling and infection in the body's internal organs and to examine a baby in pregnant women. It's also used to help guide biopsies, diagnose heart conditions, and diagnose other issues that concern you and your GP. Ultrasound is safe, non-invasive, and does not use ionizing radiation.
Some ultrasounds require some preparation, such as fasting and in other scans drinking water to ensure your bladder is full. You will be given instructions on how to prepare upon booking your appointment. Leave jewellery at home and wear loose, comfortable clothing.

A Doppler ultrasound is a test that uses high-frequency sound waves to measure the amount of blood flow through your arteries and veins, usually those that supply blood to your arms and legs. Vascular flow studies, also known as blood flow studies, can detect abnormal flow within an artery or blood vessel.
Musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce pictures of muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints throughout the body. It is used to help diagnose sprains, strains, tears, and other soft tissue conditions.
