Ultrasound uses sound waves and does not cause any harm to you. An ultrasound scan may be performed by a sonographer or a doctor, or both. A typical scan lasts about 15 minutes.
We offer ultrasound services for imaging of the chest wall, lung abnormalities amendable to ultrasound, pleural diseases and for the problem solving of any potentially important incidental findings on our CT scans (such as an unexpected unusual lesion in the liver). Our ultrasound machine, a Siemens Redwood, is at the cutting edge of technology, having just been released. As promised, we will only use the most advanced imaging machines.
For ultrasound scans, please fast for 4 hours (apart from simple fluids).
