Ultrasound scan

An ultrasound scan, sometimes called a sonogram, is a procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to create an image of part of the inside of the body.

An ultrasound scan can be used to monitor an unborn baby, diagnose a condition, or guide a surgeon during certain procedures.

How ultrasound scans work

A small device called an ultrasound probe is used, which gives off high-frequency sound waves.

You can’t hear these sound waves, but when they bounce off different parts of the body, they create “echoes” that are picked up by the probe and turned into a moving image.

This image is displayed on a monitor while the scan is carried out.

What happens during an ultrasound scan

Most ultrasound scans last between 15 and 45 minutes. Scans are performed by our highly experienced sonographers.

There are different kinds of ultrasound scans, depending on which part of the body is being scanned and why.

Types of Scan:

  • External ultrasound scan – the probe is moved over the skin
  • Internal ultrasound scan – the probe is inserted into the body

Are there any risks or side effects?

There are no known risks from the sound waves used in an ultrasound scan. Unlike some other scans, such as CT scans, ultrasound scans don’t involve exposure to radiation .

External and internal ultrasound scans don’t have any side effects and are generally painless, although you may experience some discomfort as the probe is pressed over your skin or inserted into your body.

If you’re having an internal scan and are allergic to latex, it’s important to let the sonographer or doctor carrying out the scan know this so they can use a latex-free probe cover.

Endoscopic ultrasounds can be a bit more uncomfortable and can cause temporary side effects, such as a sore throat or bloating.

There’s also a small risk of more serious complications, such as internal bleeding.

Preparing for an ultrasound scan

Before having some types of ultrasound scan, you may be asked to follow certain instructions to help improve the quality of the images produced.

For example, you may be advised to:

  • drink water and not go to the toilet until after the scan – this may be needed before a scan of your unborn baby or your pelvic area
  • avoid eating or drinking for several hours before the scan – this may be needed before a scan of your digestive system, including the liver and gallbladder

Depending on the area of your body being examined, we may ask you to remove some clothing and wear a hospital gown.

  • After having a long wait time of 3 1/2 weeks for an appointment with my NHS Dr, I decided to book in with the private gp clinic. This was quick and simple my appointment was the following week (could have been sooner if I were available). The reception staff greeted me with warm smiles as did Dr Soin. Very professional and knowledgeable. I would book in again.
