What is an Ultrasound?

An ultrasound is a non-invasive imaging test that shows the structures inside your body using high-intensity sound waves. The ultrasound is generally painless and non-invasive. It works differently from an X-ray in that it doesn’t use radiation.

Ultrasound scans use a transducer that is aimed at the part of the body being examined and produces high-frequency sounds that are reflected differently by the different tissues in the body. The transducer also detects the echoes reflected. The machine has a monitor which displays the picture to provide information about the part being examined.

There are different types of ultrasounds named depending on the body part being examined, the purpose of the ultrasound, and the dimension of the picture (3D and 4D) ultrasound.

Why You Might Need an Ultrasound Scan?

You can have an ultrasound for various reasons, including;

  • To check for infections. Some types of ultrasounds can capture a patient’s blood flow. In certain cases, an increased blood flow can indicate an infection.
  • Ultrasounds that detect blood vessels can also find narrowed vessels or blockages in the blood flow.
  • The scan can find dense areas of tissue such as tumours and cysts. The scan shows tumours differently from cysts, which can help doctors make the correct diagnosis and how to proceed.
  • Ultrasound can also help look into conditions related to the female reproductive system, like finding the source of pelvic pain.
  • It can check on thyroid conditions such as growth or abnormal activity. The scan can be used to determine if a thyroid nodule needs a biopsy.
  • You might also need an ultrasound to assess joint inflammation, evaluate metabolic bone disease, guide a need for biopsy or tumour treatment, and find genital and prostate problems, among other conditions.

An ultrasound is a practical test to consider for diagnosing various conditions and other treatment procedures. Your doctor might require one during diagnosis, providing him with valuable information to help them make an informed decision.


Private Pregnancy Scans and Early Pregnancy Scan Croydon

An early pregnancy scan in Croydon, also called a dating scan or a viability scan, is performed shortly after you find out you’re pregnant, typically six to 10 weeks after conception. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the pregnancy, the scan can be done abdominally, where the sonographer passes a wand over your stomach, or transvaginally, where a small wand is inserted into the vaginal canal. Transvaginal ultrasounds provide better clarity and observation of the foetus.

The purpose of having the early pregnancy scan in Croydon is to assess the pregnancy’s viability and deduce an accurate pregnancy date. That’s why early scans are often called viability or dating scans.

The scan also gives you the first glimpse of your growing baby. However, the details are scanty now, and you will only see a small bean-shaped figure. The scan can also show how many babies you’re carrying, and you might get to hear the heartbeat.

The sonographer will observe the location of the embryo and the size of the gestational sac, which also determines the age of the foetus and offers a due date. It can highlight potential issues, helping you and your medical team to make informed decisions about your pregnancy journey.

Benefits of Getting an Ultrasound

We provide an extensive range of private ultrasound scans in a relaxing and professional environment. Same day flexible appointments and instant results with 24 hour written reports are just some of the key points why many clients choose our clinics and have rated us London’s best ultrasound clinic.

Going for an ultrasound has its benefits, which include;

  • It is painless and non-invasive. If you’re concerned about needless or cutting the skin, an ultrasound is the best imaging test for you. It doesn’t involve any of these, and there’s no pain involved during the process.
  • There is no recovery time with an ultrasound. You can take the scan and continue with your life immediately after. You can take the test anytime without worrying about losing work hours or putting your schedule on hold.
  • Ultrasound doesn’t involve ionising radiation or contrasting agents. Because it is safer, patients can take more ultrasounds without adverse effects, allowing healthcare providers to observe various organs and functions in real-time.
  • Ultrasound scans are easy to operate, reducing the chances of errors and wrong findings. Most sonographers find the machine easy to operate, and the entire process is relatively simple.
  • An ultrasound scan is quick. You can have the scan done in a couple of minutes, with the most intensive exams taking about an hour. It is convenient for people with the busiest schedules because they don’t have to take too much time off work to complete the test.

Also, ultrasound scans don’t always have to be requested by your doctor. Some scans, like an early pregnancy scan, are recommended and can be done even without a doctor’s request.

At The Scan Clinic, you will always get a verbal summary of the results at your appointment and have the opportunity to ask any questions and get your peace of mind.

Ultrasounds have many applications. They can help detect infections, lumps, enlargement of some organs and gallstones, among others.
