An ultrasound scan uses high frequency sound waves to create an
image of an organ in the body. This very high frequency sound
cannot be heard by the human ear, but can be transmitted and the
reflection received by detection using a machine called an ultrasound
scanner. It does not use x-rays; it is a safe and painless examination.
Ultrasound can be used to look at soft tissue structures; it is
not the imaging modality of choice for examining the bones, lungs
or the gastro-intestinal tract in detail. Ultrasound examinations
offered by Surrey Ultrasound Services include:
• Abdominal scans (liver, gallbladder, kidneys, pancreas,
spleen, and aorta),
• Renal scans (kidneys and bladder),
• Female pelvic scans (uterus and ovaries),
• Testicular scans,
• Thyroid scans.
Ultrasound Services are
compliant with Care Quality Commission regulations.
