Ultrasound is a safe and effective way to diagnose many diseases and abnormalities with a high level of accuracy. In many cases, it can be used to pick up cancer, diagnose injuries, and to determine the cause of pain and symptoms.
Ultrasound does not involve radiation and is used in pregnancy to assess the foetus in the womb. The scan involves placing a special probe over the concerned area with a water-based gel and is not painful.
Unlike other diagnostic tests, ultrasound is highly dependent on the operator performing the scan and it is therefore imperative that a well-qualified and experienced individual performs your scan.
Ultrasound can also be used to guide a needle to deliver medication such as a steroid with very high levels of precision, which is simply not possible in certain cases without using ultrasound.
