Private Ultrasound Scans in London & Essex

What is an Ultrasound?

An ultrasound unit uses sound waves to create an image of various activities occurring in the human body. It comprises a transducer that is used to emit high-frequency sound not within the human hearing range. The sound echoes produced as the sound bounces around the body are recorded as the ultrasonic waves bounce back.

The ultrasound unit provides real-time data that is displayed on a computer screen. The size, consistency and shape of soft tissues and organs within the body can be determined from the images displayed on the screen.

Ultrasound scans are deemed safer because they don’t use radiation like X-rays and are non-invasive, allowing you to return to your duties immediately after the test with no discomfort.

Why You Might Need an Ultrasound Scan?

You might need an ultrasound scan for several reasons;

  • Diagnosis of various conditions such as gallstones, ectopic pregnancy, carpal tunnel syndrome, polycystic ovary syndrome, tennis elbow and heart disease, among others.
  • To determine the composition of a lump, allowing doctors to assess whether it is a cyst or a tumour. Cysts are fluid-filled and send back very few echoes, whereas tumours are solid, and waves will bounce off of them.
  • To show whether a tumour is benign or malignant by providing insight into the size, shape, and location of the tumour.
  • To check for the viability, size and age of a pregnancy and to check for any developmental and mental deformities. The ultrasound can also be used to determine the gender of the unborn baby.

Ultrasound scans can be used for various applications depending on the type of test and the location where it is conducted. Most ultrasound scans are carried out as part of the diagnosis procedure, while others, usually those associated with pregnancy, are wellness checks. While some scans are requested by a doctor, most don’t require a doctor’s request to be carried out.


Private Pregnancy Scans and Early Pregnancy Scan Harrow

An early pregnancy scan in Harrow is one type of scan that doesn’t need a doctor’s request. It is an examination that is usually carried out vaginally but can be done abdominally from around 7 weeks onwards.

The early pregnancy, dating or foetal viability scan, as it is also called, can be done anywhere from six to 10 weeks from inception. It is usually the first private scan you will have during your pregnancy.

The scan is used to see the foetal heartbeat and heart action and the foetal form. The scan is also used to determine the age of the pregnancy and its viability, depending on the positioning of the foetus.

If you happen to take the early pregnancy scan too early and the embryo can’t be seen clearly, a window of 7-14 days is allowed before repeating the scan.

  • Ultrasounds are also more accessible among accurate imaging technologies. They are also more cost-effective, allowing for affordable care for most people.
  • Ultrasound scans are perfect for individuals worried about pain or needles. The scan is non-invasive and doesn’t require any poking and prodding. The most discomfort you might feel during the scan is a bit of pressure as the wand moves around, but this is entirely bearable.
  • Also, ultrasounds have no risk of exposure to ionizing radiation. It uses the power of sound waves to take images of your soft tissues and comes with virtually no harmful effects.

Ultrasounds offer many benefits to individuals where they are applicable. Their unique, painless approach to diagnosis makes them preferred by both specialists and patients.
