Ultrasonography

Ultrasonography is an invaluable and under-used tool in the diagnosis of many disease conditions. The use of ultrasound provides important information as to the nature of thoracic, abdominal and musculo-skeletal pathology, which may not be evident from other imaging modalities such as radiography.

Ultrasonography can be used to perform ultrasound-guided procedures, such as cystocentesis, fine needle aspiration, and tissue core biopsies. The use of these techniques can reduce the degree of stress and discomfort experienced by the patient,  compared to a more invasive technique such as laparotomy.

We offer a mobile ultrasonography service to practices in the south west of England, using advanced portable ultrasound equipment.
