Ultrasound imaging is a non-invasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat a range of medical conditions.
Ultrasound examination does not use radiation (as in X-rays) and is used to show the structure and movement of the body's internal organs, as well as blood flowing through blood vessels.
3fivetwo routinely perform the most common examinations including:
- General abdominal/pelvic (tummy)
- Colour Doppler scanning (shows blood flow)
- Breast imaging
- Peripheral vascular regions such as leg and neck arteries
- Abdominal aortic aneurysm screening
Most ultrasound examinations are quick and painless however you may be required to fast or attend with a full bladder.
Please inform us if you have had a barium enema or upper GI (gastrointestinal) tests within the past two days as these can interfere with the ultrasound test.
A medical referral is required. Please allow 20 minutes for your appointment and results will be issued to the referral source within 48hrs of the scan.
