I've been to this clinic 4 times over the past 7 years for both pregnancy scans and health scans.... What sterling services they consistently provide! Booking is always easy either online or over the phone, minimum waiting time, and calming environment. What's most impressive is that Mr Usman always explained the scan results thoroughly in a calm and professional way on site and in a report, and quickly spotted issues that both my hospital scan and community clinic scan completely missed (the sonographer at the hospital even asked where I did my scan as she was impressed)! This helped me eventually get timely referral and free from lots of stress. I always feel being well looked after by the team and will wholehearted recommend them to anyone who is looking for efficient, caring and professional help.read more

Private Ultrasound FAQ's

How much is a private ultrasound in London?

The cost of private ultrasound in London varies depending on the type of scan. Generally speaking the cost can range from as little as £40 to as much as £1000 and more especially if you choose a clinic in Central London / Harley street. 

We offer a complete range of health scans, fertility scans, pregnancy scans and more and our scans start from as little as £39.

Are too many ultrasounds bad for you while pregnant?

Ultrasound is a widely used and generally safe imaging technique that has been used for decades in prenatal care. Millions of pregnant women undergo ultrasound scans each year without any known negative effects on their babies.

There’s no evidence to show that ultrasounds are harmful to the baby or the pregnant mother at any stage of the pregnancy. However, it’s essential to use ultrasound responsibly as even though there is no conclusive evidence to suggest that it can cause harm to your developing baby, the need to have so many scans may be a sign of other issues such as anxiety, stress, mental health concerns.

It’s a fine balancing act as stress and anxiety from the mother can be felt by your baby and alleviating this through a scan may be the best option but this should be discussed with your midwife / health care provider.

How many weeks does it take to get a private ultrasound?

The waiting period depends entirely on the scan clinic you select, we understand that making time for an appointment during your busy work-life schedule is hard therefore we do our best to offer flexible and convenient appointment slots that can work around you with weekday, evening, and weekend availability. This is in big contrast to current NHS waiting times which can be up to 14 weeks or more.

You can easily see our available slots by going through our online booking tool, starting a live chat with one of our friendly customer service assistants by clicking on the bottom in the bottom of this page or call us on 0203 904 7706.

What cancers can ultrasound detect?

Ultrasound is a valuable diagnostic tool used to visualise internal body structures using sound waves.

While it is a useful imaging technique, it is not equally effective for detecting all types of cancers. The ability of ultrasound to detect cancer depends on various factors, including the location, size, and characteristics of the tumour. Some cancers that can be detected or evaluated using ultrasound include oesophagus, stomach, lung, liver, colon, duodenum, pancreatic and gallbladder cancers.

Where ultrasound alone may not be able to conclusively diagnose a type of cancer it can still prove to be an invaluable diagnostic tool to determine if further imaging or investigation such as a biopsy, etc is required thus being a crucial piece of the puzzle.

How long does it take to get results from an ultrasound?

Results are available immediately, however unlike other private scan clinics, we explain your results after the scan in the form of a verbal summary and this is your opportunity to ask any questions, etc.

For pregnancy scans the report and 2 complimentary black/white thermal images will be provided in our bespoke pregnancy folder to you before you leave.

For all other scans such as health scans, we don’t just provide a print out from the ultrasound machine. Our reports are medical reports that can be shared with your doctor/ HCP therefore the report is typed up by the clinician you saw and goes through an internal quality assurance process before it is emailed to you securely, this can take anywhere between 24 – 48 hours.

What problems can an ultrasound detect?

Ultrasound is a valuable diagnostic tool used to visualise internal body structures using sound waves.

Ultrasound can be used to detect a wide range of problems and is an important diagnostic tool for doctors and health care practitioners in diagnosing specific diseases. Examples of the use of ultrasound can be seen in the use of detecting health issues such as blood clots, gallstones, aortic aneurysms, kidney, or bladder stones, enlarged spleen and abnormal growths.

Since there is no harmful radiation produced whilst using ultrasound it is the only diagnostic tool that is predominantly used during pregnancy to check on the growth and status of your baby and can help detect issues in early pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy, missed miscarriage, etc.

Why You Might Need an Ultrasound Scan

Prenatal Care

Ultrasound is a crucial part of prenatal care. It provides vital information to the parents and doctors. The transducer’s sound waves help create images of the baby and can provide various details like the size, position, movement, body parts, heart rate and amniotic fluid levels, among others. Ultrasounds are generally safe for the mother and the baby and can be used throughout the pregnancy.

Diagnosing diseases

Ultrasounds in London are also used in diagnosing diseases. The images created help medical professionals diagnose various conditions like heart diseases, pancreatic disorders, liver dysfunction and kidney problems. A private scan also helps detect blood clots, cysts, tumours and abnormal growths in the body.

Monitoring blood flow

An ultrasound is also an ideal method of monitoring blood flow because it provides real-time imaging without radiation. It can measure venous and arterial flow in all body parts. The technology can measure blood’s volume, direction and speed through arteries and veins.

Endoscopic ultrasound

Also called a EUS, this type of scan combines endoscopy and ultrasound to obtain images of the internal organs in the abdomen and chest.

It is commonly used in the upper digestive and respiratory systems. This method can also be used in place of an echocardiogram using a procedure called the transoesophageal echocardiogram.

Vascular and Doppler scans

Vascular ultrasound scans look at the blood vessels around the body. Problems with blood flow can deprive vital organs of oxygen and nutrients, causing severe problems. The vascular scans help to check for blockages, such as blood clots that could cause issues like deep vein thrombosis.

The Doppler scan helps to measure the movement of blood through the arteries. The scan is usually performed on the Carotid artery that supplies the brain. This tells the healthcare provider if you’re at risk of a stroke which usually happens when the artery’s diameter is narrowed by build-up. This type of scan can also be used as a preventative measure.

Procedural Ultrasounds

Procedural ultrasound scans help medical professionals perform procedures more accurately and precisely. They are also called guidance ultrasounds. The scan can be used to help the healthcare provider with needle placement to get a sample of tissue, fluid or other specimen;

  • Tendons
  • Organs
  • Joints
  • Muscles
  • Soft tissue muscles
  • Cysts or fluid collections
  • Transplant organs

Procedural ultrasounds are also used during embryo transfer for IVF or to confirm the IUD placement.

Pregnancy Ultrasounds

Pregnancy ultrasounds are the most common and serve many purposes. These types of ultrasounds are used to;

  • Confirm that you’re pregnant
  • Check to see how many babies you’re carrying
  • Check the position and foetal growth of your baby
  • Estimate the gestational age of the baby and estimate the due date
  • See the heart rate and movement of the baby
  • Evaluate the amount of amniotic fluid in the uterus

Pregnancy ultrasound scans are often carried out at around 20 weeks of the pregnancy. They can help track the unborn baby’s development and growth during pregnancy. The scan is commonly used to determine the sex of the unborn baby.

Your healthcare provider might also request additional pregnancy ultrasounds. They might do this to check for congenital conditions.

Diagnostic ultrasounds

Diagnostic ultrasounds look into the state of the internal areas of your body. They are prescribed when a patient presents complications, and symptoms warrant further investigation. The purpose of this type of ultrasound is to help your doctor discover what could be causing the symptoms the patient is complaining about. Some of the symptoms that may warrant an ultrasound scan include;

  • Abnormal blood tests
  • Masses (tumours, growths)
  • Unexplained pain

In most diagnostic ultrasounds, the sonographer will use a device outside your skin. They might have to put the device inside the body on other occasions. In the latter case, the device is often inserted in the rectum or vagina.

Diagnostic ultrasounds come in many types depending on your symptoms and the doctor’s recommendation. Some of the common examples of diagnostic ultrasounds are;

  • Kidney ultrasound
  • Abdominal ultrasound
  • Pelvic ultrasound
  • Doppler ultrasound
  • Thyroid ultrasound
  • Transvaginal ultrasound

Types of Ultrasounds

Ultrasounds have many functions. They can be broken into three primary categories to make it easy for patients and sonographers to determine the type of ultrasound needed.

Benefits of Getting a Private Ultrasound Scan

Immediate Scans

When it comes to health, time is of the essence. NHS facilities often have long waiting lines spanning weeks which might put you at a disadvantage. With private ultrasound scans, there’s no waiting time. You walk in, complete your scan, and walk out with the report.

Better Experience

The staff employed at most private scan facilities, including The Scan Clinic, are thoroughly trained in patient care. They take the time to explain the procedure and ensure you’re comfortable. The high-pressure environment and demanding nature of NHS facilities don’t allow the staff to thoroughly look into the needs and comfort of the patient.

Convenience

Private scans are more convenient. Once you book an appointment, you are in and out of the clinic in a few minutes. At an NHS facility, waiting in a queue might take a whole day to get your scan done.
